Dumb question re: support for determinates
Ok, maybe this is dumb, but everything I can find about supporting tomato plants has to do with indeterminants. It has been a long time since I grew any determinates, and that was a different garden with less sun and I was inexperienced and without proper tools- they didn't fare too well. This year I am giving a hybrid determinate a try, to see how I like them for certain "jobs" and to see how it does with its various resistances.
Anyhow, I keep reading that a determinate may not need support at all (seems unlikely, at least in our humid, fungal paradise) or that you can cage them with those flimsy looking wire cones, but what else? Could I just tie each one to a stake? I have a limited number of large cages that I want to reserve for my indeterminates, but a fairly good supply of stakes. The plants I am going to grow are described as small to medium sized, what ever that means. Cheers!
