  • This wind is playing havoc with my beloved tomato plants. I have 6 in a raised garden bed and they are all in cages. Every time I go out to inspect the damage I’m finding more broken / bent branches. I have been standing them up straight again and trying to brace the cage, but they just look a mess now. Should I keep interfering? Or just wait until the wind dies down and assess and fix any damage then?
    when u grow them, do u use 'spiraly' metal sticks to guide the tomatoes upwards or do u just let the grow?
    > if the former, u must look at the plants daily and guide thru the spirally thing, thus they get a certain kind of stability.

    or is the wind just taking the entire branches with it?
    could you set up some kind of temporary wind break outside the raised garden bed on the windy side? Not something solid but more like a pallet propped up with some posts? That way the wind will still get though but not with the strength to devastate your plants.
