  • It’s easy to plant your tomatoes. Simply dig a large hole, carefully remove them from the pot, place them in the hole, and water them with a seasol solution. If you’re growing from seed, make sure to follow the instructions on the pack
  • If you leave a tomato vine to grow unsupported, it will grow all over the place, so you need a good strong frame is absolutely perfect to hold the weight of the larger tomatoes
  • Stake cages are a popular, low cost system, and are easy to assemble. All you have to do is put the stakes into the ground, and clip on the connectors. The PVC coating adds durability, and the cages come in 1.6 and 1.9m sizes
