Hi, I am growing a number herbs and tomatoes, beans, brocholli etc. What I want to know is do I need to re plant herbs and tomatoes each year or will the same ones continue to grow?

Answer: Tomatoes are an annual crop that produces fruit once only. Ditto for most leafy or fruiting vegetable crops and some herbs. Some veges, such as eggplant, are perennial and produce over a couple of years and herbs such as sage, rosemary, thyme, mint and oregano, chives are perennial too and last for many years – bouncing back in spring after a winter rest. herbs such as basil, coriander and rocket, are annuals. parsely can often go 2 years but best treated as an annual. The Yates Garden Guide Book will give the detail you need for each of the specific types you are growing.
