Growing Tomatoes Up String

I tie farmers' plastic binder twine to the stem of the plant at bottom. Then tie it at the top, to a string running the length of the greenhouse , then wind the string round the stem as it grows.

PS David, they are called side shoots, not suckers!

A Wisley they grow all types of fig in a greenhouse in full sun. The plant must have had a bad stress to make big figs fall off. What time of year (month)? Do you know why? It is difficult for someone on the forum to answer such a question without knowing all the circumstances.
