Staking Tomatoes

Staking Tomatoes

Tomatoes are one of the easiest vegetable plants to grow. To ensure that your tomato plants grow those big and juicy tomatoes that you love, your tomato plants need to be staked.

Staking Tomatoes

It important that tomato plants, or any other heavy vegetable plant like eggplants, be staked. The heavy weight of the vegetables can break the branches and any vegetables on those branches will be ruined. You also need to stake the plants to be sure that they are able to grow upright and branch out. This will yield you tomatoes that are bigger and juicier. If your plants are not staked and the tomatoes are on the ground, they will rot and be subject to bugs and insects. They also will not be able to get enough sunshine to fully ripen.

There are a couple of ways to stake your tomato plants. One way is to use stakes or long poles to support and stabilize your plants and tie the plants to the stake. Another way is to use tomato cages that you place around your plants that will stabilize your tomato plant as it grows.

    Staking tomatoes is emotional for me, because it reminds me of my dad who was a Master Gardener before Master Gardening was cool. :) He had a very low opinion of people who did not stake their tomatoes – and he will approve of your article highly!
