When you live in a dry climate and place them close together it might not be
necessary.  Howver, it is quite rainy here and windy and I always stake
mine.  It was so muddy one year the plant, stake and all blew or fell over
after a heavy rain.  Someone gave me a bunch of tomato cages and I use the
really big ones for the larger plants like ancho and NM 6/4, etc. and the
smaller ones for the smaller varieties.  works great but you do have to
train them to grow up thru the rings.  This also helps keep the deer from
eating them!
