Tomatoes Vertically

Post  Green(Horn)Thumb on 3/1/2012, 10:30 am

I am brand new to this and I understand that I should trellis tomatoes on the North and West of my planters. My question is could I do two rows on the North and trellis them together or is this overcrowding, I want to get as many tomatoes as possible. Other suggestions on how to do this? Thanks

Last year was my first year SFG so I don't claim to be a SFG sage. I live in MD. I planted all four rows in my box with toms. I had no problems at all (except the stupid birds) with crowding. I think the key is to keep the suckers cut off and cleaned up. It really does leave plenty of room. I do get full sun all day long and I watered every time the mix was getting dry. I think I staggered 8 plants in my 4x4 box and put in one basil (it did VERY well). I used some old 8" x8" box wire for trellis.

Give it a try and learn from your experience.
