My mother somewhat randomly helped me pick out tomato starters at our local home improvement store. They are Park's Whoppers Improved. At the time, the big fruit yield was desirable, but I hadn't realized that they can grow to be 8-10 feet tall until I Googled the variety after I realized that the tomatoes would outgrow their 36" cages.
I planted in planters on my deck because the soil around my home is so awful. I've thought about trying to stack a new cage on top of my existing one, but that seems like a futile effort. And I would have to climb on a ladder to harvest. When I tried to search for solutions, one post mentioned that their tomatoes would continue growing back down to the ground from the top of the cage. Maybe that would work?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to support a plant that is that tall?
Thanks in advance,
