In my garden I have 3 rows with 5 tomato plants in each. I have 2 stakes at either end of the 5 plants with string twine from stake to stake on each side. The stakes are 36 high and about 12 inches in the ground. Good luck. It is best to do this before the tomato grows very much. Pushing the stake into the ground near the plant can damage the roots. Also,you can put 1 (or more if needed ) stake per plant ,& tie the plant to the stake with twine as it grows, wrapping it in a figure-of-8 to prevent it cutting in.

How do you keep top of tomato plants from sagging?

Most tomato plants need to be surrounded by support stakes or manufactured support "baskets" available at Home Depot, WalMart, etc.... If you can't find these, use my grandfather's method: Insert 1" x 1" stakes in the ground around the plant about 3' high, then tie strings around these stakes about every 6". Gently rest the limbs of the tomato plant onto the strings for support.
