    I use a wire cage and twine, but bamboo poles and twine work too, if your soil allows the little poles to go deep enough to be sturdy.

    We make this trellis shown in the picture. It's super strong and collapses so you can hang it flat on the wall in the winter. The interior is 22" wide to allow a lot of sunlight to get in to your plant. They cost a little more than the average but they are made to last at least five years. Just hose them off before you store them in the winter or use them for Christmas decor as shown. We sell these on Amazon

    The home improvement stores sell very good tomato cages that usually will not need to be twined...we grew tomatoes and just pulled the vines on the support wires they worked just fine.

    Use wooden stakes ,put three of the around the tomatoes and use stretch tape to hold them all around.

    I've always used wire cages and they work fine, as long as you install them early enough. Keep and use the cages ove and over. Funny thing, tomato growers dont support plants. Guess other plants support them.
