When I began growing more than just a few tomatoes, I was living in the country and had access to livestock fencing. So, I used that for cages. I would use 2 wood stakes to hold each cage.
When my garden was where others could see it, DW wanted to buy something that looked better and got the store-bought cages. They stack for the off-season. I had to use 3 stakes to hold them.
Not having enuf of the cages, I used 3 wood stakes and baling twine to make a cage that could be dismantled during the off-season. The number of tomato plants in the garden continued to go up and the number of stakes needed to go up, too! With 60+ plants, I needed about 200 stakes!!
After several years of just allowing most of the plants to sprawl while tying some to individual stakes, I've decided to just do that: Tie each plant to 1 stake. It helps to have, at least, 2 pieces of twine tied on the stake before driving it in the ground. But, this is just what I do and containing the plants (or not) should come down to whatever works for the gardener in his or her garden.
