How do you make tomato supports?
We like to use a strong reusable garden wire, wrapped around a few times at a cross in the remesh wire. You could also use regular wire, garden velcro, or zip ties to connect the stakes to the tomato cage. Finally, add a stake along the main tomato plant stalk if it doesn’t have one already.
