Here's a video on the simple knots and technique I use to secure tomato plants to a round post or stake so it doesn't slip down.

The post I use in the video is nice and tall, pretty cheap, easy to force into the ground or pull out, and overall makes for a great tomato stake but you do tend to hear gardeners shying away from round posts mainly due to the tie-off factor.

I use all different types of materials for tomatoes in my garden from square to round stakes, tomato cages, trellises, etc.
