Now that your tomatoes plants are in the ground and you’re looking forward to large, healthy plants with tons of ripe, juicy tomatoes, you’ve got to have strong support for them. I’ve tried many methods including…
- letting them just lie on the ground,
- those small cone-shaped cages (worthless!) and
- trellising of some sort.
The best method I’ve found and have used for many years are large cages built from concrete reinforcing wire. I got the idea from reading Charles Wilber’s How to Grow World Record Tomatoes.
The following video shows how I make these strong tomato cages and talks some about the benefits of this method.
Here’s to growing great tomatoes!!!
What’s the best method you’ve used for supporting your tomato plants?
