Tomatoes  (Solanum lycopersicum) Most tomato varieties need support, such as stakes, cages, or trellises, to keep their heavy fruit off the ground and prevent disease.

Peas (Pisum sativum) Pea plants are climbers and require trellises or support structures to allow their vines to grow vertically.

Cucumbers  (Cucumis sativus) Cucumber vines tend to sprawl, so they benefit from trellises or cages to keep the fruit off the ground and make harvesting easier.

Pole Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris)  Unlike bush beans, pole beans are climbing plants and require trellises or poles for support.

Climbing Roses (Rosa spp)  Climbing roses have long, arching canes that need support to grow vertically along a wall, fence, or trellis.

Sweet Peas  (Lathyrus odoratus) Sweet pea plants are climbing vines that produce fragrant flowers and need trellises or supports to grow properly.

Climbing Hydrangeas   These hydrangeas are climbers and require a support structure to grow vertically on walls or fences.

Indeterminate Varieties  of Eggplant  (Solanum melongena) While many eggplant varieties are bushy, indeterminate types grow like vines and benefit from support, such as stakes or cages, to keep them upright.
