What is the best size tomato cage for Indeterminate type tomatoes? I have
read different articles in garden magazines and on the www. One article
said to use 5 1/2 foot of concrete wire to form a circle 18 to 20 inches in
diameter, another article said the cage should be 24 inches in diameter.
Since this will be my first year using cages instead of stakes I don't want
to cut the wire too short or have the cage to large that the vine falls on
the ground. Any advice will be appreciated.
