String under roots at planting, an easy support method for tall growth under cover

I have used this method for 35 years and show how it works for tomatoes. Also good for cucumbers, melons, peppers and aubergines – I show a two-string variation for them. No stakes or tying in.

  1. Hi Charles,
    For micro midget watermelon do you plant just the knotted string at the bottom? Like tomatoes and cucumbers?
    Thank you
