Tomatoes growing in a growbag
Angela Slater
Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

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.
