Place a stake on the ground near the plant you want to tie. Secure the stake to the ground with at least one foot. Various materials such as wood, bamboo, and plastic are used for the stanchions.
The most important part of tying tomatoes is to tie the main stem. If the main trunk is not supported, all extended branches will be burdened. It is also important to connect the main trunk as soon as possible.
Failure to tie the main stem in the early stages of growth makes the roots comfortable and later makes it difficult to tie the plant without actually damaging the roots.
It is recommended to tie the main stem directly to the root of the plant. Keep this base a few inches off the ground. The space below leaves room for future growth. Also, be careful not to let the branches grow below the pedestal level, as it will be difficult to remove the branches from the ground later.
When growth begins, the ranch grows away from the main stem. It is important to tie them to the post that ties the main trunk.
Some gardeners weave the branches for extra support before tying them to the main stanchions. Keep checking the plants for sagging branches. If you find other branches that need help, please link them as well.
Do not connect all branches
From time to time, new growth encourages the growth of wild branches. Gardeners often hold these branches and even tie them together.
It is advisable to run wild branches and occasionally crops so that the plant does not mature the fruit but wastes its tendency energy and resources.
If you don’t want to use stakes to connect the tomatoes, there is another way. You can tie tomatoes with a string. There are a few steps you need to follow. The string method allows for a cleaner harvest.
At least two stakes a few meters apart are required. These stakes must be at least 7 feet high. Run a pipe between these two mountains at the top. You can also wire wires or boards as long as they are attached to the stakes.
Now is the time to tie the strings to the pipe you just installed. Leave at least 1 foot of space between each string. When planting tomatoes, be sure to plant each row under the string at regular intervals.
Use a garden peg to tie a string to the base of the tomatoes on the ground. Wait for the tomatoes to grow. As the stem grows, twist it into a string and continue to run the wild-growing branches.
Tying tomatoes is important for their health. There are several ways to tie tomatoes, but there are also convenient ways for gardeners. Tying it ensures that watering, weeding, and harvesting will be easier. There are many other benefits, so don’t ignore them.
