Will tomatoes grow up a string?
Get a tomato clip and place it under a low branch coming off the main stem. 3. Clip the tomato clip closed so that the hinge hugs the string – it will hold tight. If you've got enough tension on your string, this will hold the base of your tomato plant upright.
Should you cut the bottom leaves off tomato plants?
As the plants grow, revisit them regularly and keep the bottom 6 to 12 inches bared. Trim away these lower leaves and stems while they're small, rather than letting them grow. This conserves the plant's resources, and a smaller pruning wound creates less opportunity for disease to enter.

How high should a tomato trellis be?

How do you use a string trellis?
How tall should I let my tomato plants get?
When the plant reaches the desired height–usually no taller than its support, 4 or 5 feet is good–consistently pinch out all new growing tips. In a week or so time, the plant will quit trying to put out new growth at the topmost part of the plant and concentrate on new growth and fruit below.
When should I pinch my tomato plants?
Pinching seedlings back when they are 4 to 6 inches tall to force new growth works for any tomato plant. Because the plant is young and has not yet bloomed, this does not affect fruit set. Plants can be pinched again as soon as new growth grows 2 to 3 inches, if necessary.
What happens if I don’t stake my tomatoes?
Without some attachment to a stake, fence or cage, most tomato plants will flop onto the ground where slugs and other pests may chew on the leaves and later feast on the fruit. Getting those plants up off the ground also allows air to circulate through the foliage of the plant, helping to prevent disease.
