|Tomato Plants Provide A Backdrop For Marigolds|
Staking tomatoes came about in an attempt to use space in the garden more effectively, but their natural growth pattern is to sprawl. Plant your tomato starts, then mulch heavily with straw or other natural mulches. The mulch will keep the tomatoes from resting on the soil and rotting.
I have gotten very good yields using this method. There are no costs for staking materials and it cuts down on labor time. The tomatoes grown in this way can be tucked into the flower gardens as accent plants. The natural growth pattern makes them less obtrusive than if they were staked.
