Need to Stake DIY Tomato Cages
I have officially abandoned the store bought tomato cages after too much frustration and lost tomatoes. Last week I made 27 tomato cages out of reinforced concrete wire mesh, and I am super excited. I went ahead and cut off the bottom ring to be able to stick them in the ground about 6 inches.
My question is whether I need to stake these cages with something (rebar, conduit, etc). I've read on the forums what people used to stake DIY cages, but not if you need to. I didn't know if those people cut off their bottom ring or not. Thanks for the help!
