Agrotonomy has tried many different approaches to grow tomatoes.
Firstly, we started with 7-pot-towers using the regular grow cage manufactured by Tower Garden. Regrettably, the weight of the vines loaded with tomatoes’ crushed’ the grow cages which were too weak to match the growth of the plants.
There were over 100 kg of vines + tomatoes which created too much of a wall effect allowing the wind to push against during a storm. At True Garden, such planting approach was successful because it was indoors (inside a greenhouse) and therefore protected from the wind.
