My hugely-successful cherry tomato plant is now dying off (late Autumn, Brisbane). Do I prune it or toss it?

I've found conflicting advice on whether cherry tomatoes will continue on for a few seasons ... I've had constant & prolific fruit for about 9 months from this amazing single plant (caged with about 8 giant, winding stems). Now the nights are pretty darn cool (not really a frost area here though) so it's drying up. Do I prune it back or toss it and start from scratch with its own seeds?

Answer: Hi Kay,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Cherry Tomato. Glad to hear that it has been provide tomatoes over 9 months. Tomato is an annual which means it will need to resow after dying off. The good news is, you can grow tomatoes all year around in subtropical area in stead of waiting until spring again in temperate zone. For next season, Try Yates Thrive tomato & veggie Natural Fish Blood & Bone+ Concentrate, the dual acting formula feed through both leaves and roots to boost healthy grown and yield of veggies and herbs.
