Growing Tip: Support June 19, 2014 Growing Tips Plants that are grown for their heavy fruit or flowers are often found slumped over with bent or even broken branches. It is always a great idea to plan ahead and either stake, employ tomato cages or put up a trellis netting to provide adequate support and reduce stress. By providing proper support you are able to maximize airflow, increase potential fruit or flower sites and increase yields. Proper staking or other forms of support are an important tool in increasing production and maintaining plant health.
