How to tie tomato plants?

The question is: how do you do that? What materials are needed to ensure that the plants can produce the largest possible number of fruits without them falling to the ground prematurely?

Place the tutors

Before even planting the seedlings in the ground, it is highly recommended to place the tutors, since now that there is nothing, it will be much easier to put them. Then, as they grow, we will only have to take some ropes and tie them to the posts. Not sure what to use as tutors? Do not worry. Here are some ideas:

  • Bamboo poles
  • Iron rods
  • Wood sticks
  • Broom/ mop sticks

As you can see, it is not necessary to complicate much, although you should know that nurseries and others sell rods at a very good price, like these here:

Tie the tomato plants

Once you have them, you must nail them to the ground at a distance of about 40-50cm between them. If you have chosen bamboo poles or rods that have a certain flexibility, you can place them in a triangle, leaving about 40cm between a rod or rod and the one next to it.

The next step is to plant the tomato plants, take care of them, and let them reach a height of about 50 or 60 centimeters, which is more or less when they are preparing to fruit. So, with that height and a rope, you must tie them to the canes by passing a rope (like this one sold here ) through the main stem, and another if necessary through the branches. 

Happy harvest .
