Go up with a horizontal or vertical trellis?

Post  chocolatepop on 6/17/2010, 5:21 pm

So. I have a 2x7 foot box that I want to do will all maters (indeterminate). Too much?

Also, Should I do the horizontal method, or verticle since there are so many maters in a small area?
Any other suggestions?

I usually grow about 16 tomatoes. This year I have only 12. If it was me I would do two vertical trellises. You could do two 3 1/2 foot wide or one 3 and one 4.
Other than Mel's trellis idea the only one I have liked for tomatoes is the corkscrew type but you would need one for each tomato so that adds up quickly.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of the corkscrews. They aren't very tall and last year my maters got easily to 7ft. Or maybe the corkscrews ive scene aren't the right ones? Do you have a picture of the ones you are speaking of? Cause if they are the right ones I wonder if I could do that?

so, what do you mean two trellises of varying lengths? Because wouldn't I need one on each side of the box?

I have a 2' x 8' and the trellis is down the center of the box.
