Best Tomato Trellises & Tomato Cages

Tomatoes are one of the top homegrown crops in backyard gardens. It’s easy to see why: there are hundreds of gorgeous and tasty varieties available to gardeners that you just can’t buy at the grocery store.

However, for good tomato harvests, you’ll need a tomato trellis. It’s better to trellis tomatoes for easier pruning, harvesting, airflow, and for healthier plants.

Homegrown tomatoes taste better because they can be harvested at their peak flavor. They also require you to put up a tomato trellis for support otherwise they’ll flop over. One season I was curious (& lazy) and didn’t trellis our tomatoes to see what the yield would be. Surprisingly we did get a decent harvest, however, crop damage was higher being so close to the ground.

Tomato Trellis & Tomato Cages

How you trellis your tomatoes will depend on the type you’re growing & how many plants you have.

Some of these ideas, while cute and DIY friendly, would only work (in my opinion) if you don’t have that many tomato plants. If you’re growing A LOT of tomatoes then you’ll likely need trellis options that are friendlier on the budget like using strong string to tie them upwards or fencing. I’ll share tomato trellis and cage ideas whether you have a few plants or many.
