• even undersized tomato bushes need to be tied up;
• for tying, you cannot use wire, fishing line and thin ropes, it is better to cut old nylon tights, which every woman has a lot of;
• not used for tying ropes from last season to avoid possible contamination.

If you tie up even small bushes, then a powerful root system begins to form in them, they become stronger, therefore, more nutrients are delivered to the tomatoes.
