Even though this type of clips is usually called tomato clips, growers can benefit from garden clips in many plants such as cucumbers, peppers, melons, beans, flowers (especially in roses) and other vine crops.
As stated above, it is very easy to install tomato clips, but there are some points that should be taken into consideration. First of all, clips should be placed in right parts of plants. Tomato clips can be put in plant stem, just below the leaf, but before the FlexTruss or arch cluster support. The place below the leaf are usually called Y junction, so the most effective place for tomato clips installation is Y junctions. Tomato trellising clips can be used in other parts of plant as well, depending on situation.
In order to install, tomato clips are simply snapped to netting, twine trellis or plant ladders and supports, and softly close around stems of plant. Average 10-20 clips are used per plant while long-term growth. In short-term growth, growers use 5-10 clips for each plant. To put approximately 20 cm (7.87 inch) between clips is recommended.
