There are several ways to tutor your tomatoes, so they can grow properly. Here are our top tips.
In addition to helping your tomatoes grow, tutoring protects the fruits from diseases, to which they are more prone when they stay close to the ground. And when you grow tomatoes, it's to eat them... So it's in your best interest to preserve them as best you can!
The other argument in favour of tutoring is simply your comfort: it will be much easier for you to pick your tomatoes when they are ripe if your feet are properly tutored.
And then, between us... What could be nicer than growing a well-ordered vegetable garden? You will at least agree on one point: just by taking a look at it, you immediately want to pamper fruits and vegetables!
First of all and whatever you choose as to the tutor you will use, remember to plant it before your plants. This way, you will avoid damaging them. To do this, push your stem by at least a third, so that it is strong enough on the day your plants have grown, and will therefore weigh a certain weight.
The most difficult choice when you start tutoring your tomatoes is necessarily... That of tutors, or tutoring technique! Here's a list of the different ways you can do this:
Once you have found the right guardian, think about the maintenance and needs of your plants. Don't hesitate to listen regularly if you have opted for a simple tutor, for example. However, make sure your links aren't too tight... It would be a shame to damage or break tomato arms by attaching them to your stakes!
Also, consider watering your tomatoes. Just because they have been tutored doesn't mean they will grow on their own: they will need water! For watering, there are other possibilities than browsing your vegetable garden with a watering can. You can invest in water tank tutors, which are very easy to find in the trade - of course, you have to pay slightly more than for the purchase of traditional tutors.
Finally, don't hesitate to find out about the varieties of tomatoes you intend to plant: indeed, the watering, the need for sunlight (or not) of your fruit will differ depending on their variety. That's why you'll have to adapt your choice of tutor to the plants you've selected. It's up to you!
