Tomato plants grow upwards, making the plant very heavy and the stem not strong enough to carry the plant. Therefore, it is important to support the crop by stringing every plant with twine. From the beginning of the cultivation, young plants are stringed with twine. Subsequently, each week the twine needs to be twisted around the lengthening stem of the plant and lateral shoots are removed. On of that, tomato plants are depending on the type of crop, lowered frequently. To support the twine, growers also use trellising clips to support the plant instead of twisting twine. Both methods have pros and cons. Our specialist explains the differences between clipping and twisting
