Can you replant tomato plants?
Cannot answer without a little more context to the question. If you are asking, can I transplant a tomato from one location to another, the answer is yes. You will have more success if the transplant is still a small seedling. Relocating tomato plants later in the season may affect fruit production, since you will be disturbing the root system which may require some recovery time before the plant will grow more.

They flower and then the flower dies off to be replaced by the fruit (the tomato).
Lifting a plant from a nursery bed and planting in its permanent home is one type of replanting. Another type is when a field is planted, but is lost early in the season due t…o flooding or other factors, and the field is planted again that same season.
May the 3rd is generally considered your last frost date. So you can plant your tomato plants anytime after that.
Best done in Spring as they start to grow.
Conditions Are too Good The mostcommon reason why an apparently healthy tomato plant has no fruit,when growing outdoors, is that its soil is too fertile. Tomatoplants go to …seed when they are stressed by slightly infertileconditions...liken this to cool-weather plants that must beprotected from heat, lest THEY go to seed. Since, unlike lettuce and broccoli, we actually want tomatoes to goto seed (bear fruit), we have to take care in these ways: . Be careful not to give them fertilizer with much nitrogen. . It's also possible for soil to have too much nitrogenalready. . A third source of over-fertility is nearby legumes: Bean, pea,and clover plants host a bacteria that fixes nitrogen into thesoil, and are good for planting near cucurbits (cucumbers, squash,and melons), brassica (broccoli, cabbage), and corn, but shouldnever be grown near tomatoes or peppers. The Plant is too Still If theobviously healthy plant plant is actually blooming, but not settingfruit, then the problem is likely to not be overly fertile soil,but overly still air. If the air is extremely still (no breeze) for weeks at a time, oryou are growing tomatoes indoors, you can get blooms that do not"set" into fruit. This is because they are not getting pollinated.Tomatoes are self-pollinating, but they need at least a lightbreeze, or American-native pollinators to disturb them. You can easily fix this, simply by gently shaking the entire plant(very gently) every day or two. Animals like birds visiting theplants can have a similar effect. Note that honeybees are an invasive species from the Old World,while tomato plants are native to the Americas; No plants native tothe Americas need, or even can use, honeybees for pollination.Pumpkins need squash bees, tomatoes air-pollinate, corn ispollinated by birds, wind, and large American insects, et cetera.Encourage native pollinators in your garden, by including"companion plants" that will attract them, like umbellifers (queenanne's lace and parsley, for example). They are old world plants,but their flowers attract few honeybees, and are the right size formany native pollinators.
The average date to plant tomatoes in Kentucky is around April the 12th.
In dormancy carefully dig it up, being delicate to roots, split stems and carefully untangle roots and replant. I'm actually doing that today in my gardens.

put seeds in the ground
You can replant a strawberry plant any time during the growing season. Just make sure you pick off all the blooms that appear on the strawberry plant.
you put the plant in the ground
Get seeds and plant them or get the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter. If you buy the plant in the store partly grown, bury 3/4 of the tomato plant underground. well most people bu…y them in little plastic pots and put them near a sunny window,then when there getting a little to big for the small pots you plant them out side in fertile soil in the sun,and you have to stake a pole a inch or two away from the plant so it can grow around it sence tomato grows on vines, water it once every day or two days depends how much it rains,then wait till there red and pick em,if you live in a buggy area put 7-dust around the ground of your garden,but make shure to wash the tomato well befor eating,and don't kill spiders,lady bugs,or praymantis because they kill insects that eat plants in your garden
Tomatoes are easy to grow from a plant. The main things the plant needs are good, loose soil, water, sunshine, and more sunshine. A great way to get good soil is to throw …your autumn leaves onto the ground where you plan to plant the tomato. Leave the leaves there all winter so that their nutrients will be absorbed by the soil. It is a good rule of thumb to wait till there is no more chance of the ground freezing before planting anything. Once there is no more chance of the ground freezing, remove the leaves from the soil. The leaves will be wet and full of worms, so it is not a pleasant task, but the results in the soil are well worth it. Always return every stray worm to the earth. Next, plant your tomato plants. Plant them a good two feet away from each other, for tomato bushes grow big. While the plants are still small, put tomato cages around each one. Now you will have to wait for some time before anything seems to happen. Like every plant, tomatoes need water. It is good to check the soil around the plants everyday. If it is moist or wet, leave it alone. But if it is dry, water it generously. When you water tomatoes, always put the hose or the water pitcher right at the base of the plant's stem so that the water goes directly into the dirt without touching the leaves or branches of the bush. If the tomato plant is too wet for too long, it will become sickly. A sign of a healthy tomato plant is green powder from the leaves. Rub your fingers along the tops of the tomato plants; if a green powder is left on your fingers, your plant is healthy and getting plenty of sunshine. Eventually yellow flowers will blossom on the bushes. From these flowers will grow tomatoes. Although you have to wait a considerable time before the tomatoes start actually coming, once they come, they come in full force. Now you have to check the bushes for two things besides the dampness of their soil; you must also look for tomatoes and for cracked stems. Pick the tomatoes when they are ripe. If you leave a tomato for too long, it will fall prey to little rodents and insects. So it is best to check your tomatoes bushes every morning. If a tomato looks almost ready, pick it. It is better to pick a tomato a few hours early than to find it half eaten by vermin the next morning. Because tomato bushes are so thick, you will have to search through the mesh of their foliage to find the tomatoes growing on their central branches. It will take a good several minutes to completely find every tomato on a single healthy bush. Cracked stems are a problem caused by the weight of the tomatoes. A tomato bush can handle several cracked stems. But it is better to avoid cracked stems by tearing an old T-shirt into long, 1 inch wide strips. Use these strips to hold stray branches (like in a sling) and tie the ends of these strips to a horizontal bar on the tomato cage. Very large tomato bushes will grow so far beyond their cages that they will begin to fall over, taking their cages with them. In this case, hammer several tall, strong sticks into the ground and tie the bush and cage to the sticks to hold the bushes and cages upright. You may break a few stems in the process, but that is not bad if you do not break more than a few. Finally, as the tomato bushes die, remove the cages and sticks and ties. Also remove the dead tomato plants! Letting them "rot in place" or chopping them up and adding them to your tomato plot is one of the #1 ways tomato plant diseases are spread. A final note to keep in mind is that land cannot support the same plant for year after year. So it is good to let the land rest for a year every two or three years.
Replantation refers to reattachment of a completely severed part, meaning there is no physical connection between the part that has been cut off and the person.
A general purpose compost and soil potting mix or a vermi-compost can be used to replant a ficus plant. The woody plant in question may be found as a popular indoor plant. It …will be convenient to use dark-colored, fresh-smelling, nutrient-rich compost broken down in a kitchen counter-located container full of carbon- and nitrogen-rich compostables, such as food leftovers and scraps, and special worms.
Plants which grow from seed each year are called annuals.
