tomatos & chain link

Post  carolintexas on 5/24/2010, 1:23 am

A friend brought me 6 tomato plants tonight. I already have 14 in my boxes. 2 questions.....if I plant the new tomatoes next to my chain link fence would I be able to grow them vertically through the chain link or would the holes be too small? The tomatoes I planted in my boxes have big square cattle panels to grow on. If I plant the new 6 plants outside my boxes but right next to them would there be enough room on the cattle panels for tomatoes to grow from both sides? Obviously I've never even seen a tomato plant growing vertically other than photos on this site. Since these are extra plants I want to grow them in the dirt just as a comparison to my 14 in my boxes. She brought me 2 husky red cherry and the other 4 she doesn't know what they are other than they will grow "big" tomatoes. Thank you for your thoughts and have a great week.

Why not just use plant ties to attache them to the fence as they grow. It is a roll of usually green stretchable plastic tie that is easy on a plant's stem.

+1 That's what I was thinking too. I don't know what the stuff is called, but we call it garden tape or garden ribbon.

Thanks guys. Do you have to go to a home depot type place, plant nursery or should Walmart carry it? Appreciate your response...have a good day!
