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.

Stake pepper plants Attach the main stem of your tomato plant to a single wooden stake with loose twist ties. (This technique also works well for pepper plants.) As the tomato plant grows taller through the season, add more ties to secure the tip to the pole.    Here's a hint: Remove excess side branches by pinching them off at the main stem before they grow 6 inches long.
