Support for Tomatoes

tomato plant 300x225 Support for TomatoesYour tomato plants are in the ground, the weather is warming up and the plants are growing!  What’s next? Take the time to stake your tomato plants.  Staking your plants helps keep them clean and avoids diseases, and makes it easier to monitor them for any problems and harvest when the time comes.

There are several options available for your plants including stakes, circular cages or the use of a trellis.  If using a stake use stakes between 3 to 8 feet tall.  Ensure that you have a least a foot in the ground beside the tomato plant and tie the plant to the stage as it grows.  Set stakes between 2 to 4 feet apart, this will depend on the variety of tomato that you use.

Circular cages provide more support for your plants.  Set cages about 4 feet apart, again depending on the variety of tomato.  Cages can be re-used.

Testimonials

“On Wed 8/13/14 I experienced excellent customer at your business. I was running an errand for my wife who purchased a dog treats earlier this week. She had texted my at message to let me know what you happen. When I entered your business and being unfamiliar with the stock, I asked for some assistance. All of the young female employees were able to assist me...one looked at text msg and other with to find I needed. They were very helpful and courteous. They are assets for your business.”
