Supporting Tomato Plants.

  Supporting Tomatoes
Bush types  require no supports.
The main stem of cordon types needs supporting to stop it falling over. Canes or strings can be used.

If canes are used to  support the tomato plants, the main stem should be tied loosely to the cane as it grows. So there will be a string holding the stem to the cane every 30cm or so. Soft string should be used, so that it does not cut into the stem.
