Help your tomato plants by supporting them before they develop heavy fruit. On tall AeroGarden’s with our built-in trellis system, that’s easy. On smaller gardens try bamboo sticks or even chopsticks to support your plants. Stick them down inside the grow pods next to the stem. Plants will grow up leaning into them or you can tie gently to the support. Early support can keep tomatoes from collapsing under the weight of the fruit (tragic if it happens just before harvest).
