Support for tomato clusters??
« on: May 22, 2022, 03:46:54 pm »
Iím curious as to how you all handle tomato plants with clusters of tomatoes. Iím noticing that one or two of my plants have small clustered tomatoes (not cherry tomatoes) and the main stem they are branching from appears to be bending kind of sharply from the weight of the fruit. Do you guys just leave this alone and assume the fruit is getting the nutrients it needs or do you try and support it in any manner? Like soft ties or the like? Thanks!

I use a combination of tomato clip, tomato hook and string.
