How to Tie Tomatoes. There are two reasons to tie tomatoes, and there's a different tie for each one. Train the leader to grow upright with a loose, figure-eight tie.

Loop the tie twice around the stake and tie it tightly so the tomatoes dont pull it down with their weight.

How to tie a tomato - use twine that should be at least inch thick, or else it can cut into the tomato stems.
