Tomatoes growing in a growbag

How To Support Tomatoes Planted In A Growbag

Support your growing tomatoes before they grow too large


You will need:

  • Growbag cane support
  • canes - 180cm (6’)
  • soft string

Place the cane support underneath the growbag and place the canes through the appropriate slots and push into the compost about 5cm  (2”) away from the tomato stem.

Tie in the tomato with soft string as it grows.

Support the tomato before it becomes too large as if the growbag is outdoors the wind will soon snap the stems.
