Hello, my name is Jessica Craven. I'm a master gardener and I have my certification in permaculture design. Today, I want to talk to you about how to string up your tomatoes. This is actually pretty easy. A lot of folks like their standard wire tomato cages. Or perhaps you like a wooden frame tee pee something like this. But say for example you've got quite a few tomato plants and you know you are just not sure how you want to grow them. One thing that you can do is you can put your tomato plants upright against a fence. And then you can just simply have string attached to your fence and basically kind of lightly stake it into the ground. And basically what the tomatoes will do is they'll start to intertwine and vine up that string and use that string as support. You'll want to use several strong strings or twine really for each tomato plant. You can make like a trellis type situation like or grid even. Metal stakes, you don't have to use a fence. You can get really creative. I've seen some people actually have strings growing or going at a diagonal from other plants. You know say branches of on orange tree that were going outright and having the tomatoes start to grow upright. You don't have to use wire cages. You can definitely use the string grow up situation, grow a really cool vine and enjoy tomatoes in your yard. I hope you've enjoyed these tips on stringing up your tomatoes.
