Twine-Star Supports

Martha Stewart Living, March 2004

A terra-cotta pot paired with these supports is ideal for determinate tomatoes, which don't grow as tall as indeterminate varieties. Drive five 1-by-1-inch stakes into soil, to bottom of pot; stakes should be long enough to stand 4 feet above the soil. Plant a seedling in center of the pot. Wind nylon twine star shapes around stakes at 6-inch intervals.
