Your Preferred Way of Supporting Tomato Plants
I am sketching out our potager for this spring and the question came up of what we will use for our tomatoes that will be practical, good support for the plants, that is still nice to look at. Last year I crisscrossed tall stakes and tied them (3 together) and used those for supports. Then I connected the whole row with a long stake across the tops and tied them together. It was just too much work to keep everything tied up, and not good enough support (and during the hurricane effects we got was totally blown over).
What do you recommend as a solid, easy-to-use support that looks okay in a potager? (I am considering tomato cages painted to complement the garden.)
