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).
If you're starting tomato plants from seed, start them indoors under strong lights in a warm room 6 weeks before the last frost date for your area. You can find out the last frost date by contacting your county or regional agricultural extension office, or googling "last frost date" + (your)location…. Frost kills tomatoes, and they grow very slowly in cold, but not frosty, weather, so it's best to plant them in the ground only after all danger of frost has passed. This can be early March in some locations, or as late as mid-june in others. (MORE)
Tomato plants are sensitive to the pH levels in the garden soil. The optimum levels should be between 6-6.8
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 to flooding or other factors, and the field is planted again that same season.
A Tomato is a plant and a fruit. If you are wondering about the controversy between fruit and vegetable, there is some discussion of that on this site, if you scroll down: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato
May the 3rd is generally considered your last frost date. So you can plant your tomato plants anytime after that.
20" tall is what I've read. I just bought some and put them in pots on the deck. I'm hoping they will only be 20" tall. to answer this for you, i have one plant in my garden , it is about 3 feet around and 25 to 30 inches high and going to yield about 40 to 50 tomatoes
Yes tomatoes can be grown in sand. However you will have to supply extra nutrients and water in order for them to produce tomatoes.
Tomato plants are not picky eaters. However if you want to grow the biggest, tastiest tomatoes then you will want to use a fertilizer specifically formulated for tomatoes. Espoma makes a product called Tomato-tone that has been tested by universities as an outstanding tomato fertilizer.
Tomato plants should have at least 8 hours of sun each day along with 1 inch of water per week. The soil should have a pH level between 6.0 and 6.8.
I want to know about how to water a tomato plant and how much water and where?
Not really, because the the tomato plant is poisonous to rabbits. All parts of the tomato plant are poisonous to bunnies (including leaves, vines, stems, etc.), except for the fruit. Wild rabbits may eat some of the tomato fruit, if it comes across any. Pet rabbits often enjoy a bite or two of to…mato fruit as a treat. (Too many treats will make your rabbit sick, though, so be careful.) Never give your pet bunny any part of the tomato plant to eat except for the fruit: your pet bunny has lost many of its wild instincts, and no longer knows what is safe to eat and what isn't (that's your job!). See the related question below for info about what to feed your pet bunny. See the related link for a list of poisonous plants for rabbits. (MORE)
If the plants are in good soil, being properly watered and fed with the required light and temperature you dont have to worry.
Tomato plants that are planted in the garden should have a minimum of 1" of water per week. If the plant is growing in a container it should have at least 1 gallon of water per day.
They are called hornworms and turn into moths. These worms also eat eggplant lettuce etc. Hornworms have a sharp horn that is used for protection. These worms are green and very hard to see.

You may have got a male plant. These plants do not bear fruit. They are grown to pollinate female plants. If the plant has flowers, the flowers are not getting pollinated to bear fruit.
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 he…at, 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. (MORE)
Tomatoes should be planted after all chances of frost are gone for your area. Your local extension agent would have the dates for your area. You can plant the seeds in containers inside the house in January. By April or May you will have nice sized plants to transplant into your garden.
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.
Yes you can only plant one tomato plant if that is what you desire. Tomatoes do not need another plant to pollinate, the bees will do all the work.

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.
Beefsteak tomatoes are no different than other types of tomatoes when it comes to planting time. It all depends upon your hardiness zone. I have included a link for you to find yours.
It is best to plant tomatoes when all danger of frost in your area is past. Either plant starts from your local garden shop or start seeds six weeks prior to last frost inside. As you set either out, harden them off by introducing them to the outside conditions a little at a time. If you have them p…lanted and a surprise frost is coming, protect them by watering them and covering them with a plastic milk carton with one end cut away. (MORE)
Tomato plants should be planted 36-60" apart from each other. If you plant them closer it increases the risk of disease.
photosynthesis is cased when you hold a light to the sky and you put a junior mint in front of it and you have photosynthesis.
Do not buy the flimsy cone shaped cages that are sold everywhere. Get some strong fencing material...I think it is called hog wire. Make a tube shaped cage, about 5 feet tall, and about 3 feet in diameter. Place it over the tomato while it is still small, and wait for your plant to grow and fill it …up! (This also works wonderfully for cucumbers...saves lots of space when they are not sprawling all over the ground) (MORE)
have nice rich soil, make it damp (spraying water) dont soak it though.

Tomatoes are considered as heirlooms once they have been around for at least 60 years. many heirloom tomato plants have been grown for over 100 years. They must also be able to grow the same type of plant as the seed that was saved.
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 buy 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 (MORE)
If you prepare your soil before planting season, there is not much you have to do to grow wonderful tomatoes. I turn my soil in February to kill off any larva the might be in the soil. ( Recommended if you are in an area where you get a hard freeze. ) Then around March or April, I turn in manure. ( …Note, if using horse manure, it is best to fill a bucket 1/4 with manure, and the remainder of the bucket with water. Let it sit for a day, stirring every little bit. The next day, pour out the 'manure tea' into your garden. Since I plant a good sized garden, I usually just dump the manure into the garden . . . The drawback - a fair amount of weeding. Since seed 'passes through' a horse, you could be growing some unusual plants that you hadn't counted on. Ha ha ) Anyway . . . In early May, I then turn compost matter into the garden. ( A composter is a WONDERFUL way to add organic matter to your garden ! I highly recommend investing in one. ) Everytime my neighbor goes fishing, he turns over all the heads and guts to me, and I turn them into the soil in my garden, between rows or around tomato or pepper plants. Another good source of nutrients. Don't be afraid to try your hand at gardening . . . Weeding is sometimes a pain, but it really IS worth the effort, especially if you KEEP IT NATURAL ! Stay away from chemical fertilizers, and pesticides. By the way . . . once your garden has been prepared, you really do not need to keep fertilizing it . . . If you did it right to begin with, one more application of 'manure tea' is really all it will need . . . but will do just fine without another application if you have decent soil. ( You never stated where you were from . . . I am assuming your soil is average. If it is sandy or clay based, there is a lot of prep work that sometimes takes a couple of years. I grew tomatoes successfully at 8,000 ft in altitude - Colorado. Prefer gardening east of the Mississippi. Good Luck ! (MORE)
If you plan to plant tomatoes, temperature is the first thing youneed to consider. You can start planting when thee temperature issteady at 50 degrees Fahrenheit. If the tomatoes have to startbearing fruit, its need to be warm as 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Aswith most of the fruits, sunlight is very ess…ential. The wateringwill mainly depend on the weather conditions. You need to increasethe frequency if the weather is hot. The fruit can be veryadaptable when it comes to soil. Most fertilizers can be just fine.Try to add compost to the soil when planting tomatoes. (MORE)
you put a supporting stick on the tomato plant P.S. this is my first time answering a question here
Tomatoes, like other foods are subject to ones taste buds. However many people will tell you that an heirloom tomato plant has much more flavor than say a hybrid variety. Plant a few different varieties for yourself and you will soon determine which ones you like the best.
yes. they do eat tomatose. i would suggest bug killer. but wash them off when you pick them
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 nutrie…nts 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. (MORE)
it depends on the plant and how long it grows for but a healthy tomato plant will continuously produce fresh tomato's as long as the plant is properly taken care of and it is possible for them to live for mutable years in green house's.
If your tomato plants are not producing anything (except blossoms), you might have a pollination problem, or you might have planted seeds from a store-bought tomato that have been cross-pollinated and are more or less sterile. This presumes that they are blossoming but are not producing fruit. I…f, on the other hand, your tomato plants are producing fruit but are performing poorly, they are underfed, underwatered or you have not pruned them properly. Make sure you feed them a good general purpose fertilizer two or three times after the plants have developed, and most importantly , prune them heavily !!! You must remove all the leafing branches except for the top three or four at all times during the growth of the plant or you will grow nothing but leaves and a few underdeveloped puny tomatoes. This means that you will be removing branches or suckers or both every day throughout the growing season. Do not remove the producing growths, just the leafy branches. And please note this does not apply to Tiny Tims and other dwarfed plants as they grow so branchy they are nearly impossible to prune; these plants will produce hundreds of tiny tomatoes without any pruning whatsoever.

Tomatoes contain seeds which if planted will grow another tomato plant. A few varieties have been hybridized so their seeds may not grow the same type of tomato but almost all seeds will grow under the right conditions.
Just don't let them dry out!! keep moist and fertilize every 2 weeks with acid fertilizer. keep adding dirt to bring level up on stem for more root growth! Enjoy!
Fuzz or spikes on plant stems deter insects from climbing up to eat the leaves.
heres your answer . a tomato plant is a nickture the countains body womp. and upluh.
Im not an expert but im pretty sure a tree is a plant...but i know what you mean. Im guessing a tomato is a bush because the actual tomato is considered a berry, So I would say it is a bush or a shrub. I dont think it would be a tree because they dont get that tall. Tomato plants are actually vines… but some are called bush varieties because the vines have been bred to be sturdy and to stand on their own. (MORE)
Place 3 seeds into the soil. Water it. Day by day watch it and water it and make sure it has plenty of sunlight.
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.
Well plants can't produce their own body heat, and tomato plants just plain aren't made for the cold.
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 contai…ner full of carbon- and nitrogen-rich compostables, such as food leftovers and scraps, and special worms.

You pluck a tomato plant like any other plant. You take the ripe ones offe the branch by lightly yanking on the fruit. Try not to break the branch off and keep the little green leaves on the the top of the tomato on until you need to cook the or eat the tomato.
Aphids, they can be many colors, most commonly the green color of tissue. They are piercing sucking insects like mosquitos, they do no chewing. The can seriously weaken a plant as they extract the food that's being manufactured. They process and exude (or 'poop') the excess moisture into tiny drops …of clear sticky liquid called honeydew. Ants love this honeydew, and will gang up to transport it back to feed their babies underground. They actually 'milk' the aphids for it. Aphids have a very soft body and are affected by soap sprays. Other beatle-like insect with hard shells are NOT. But you've got an easy one here with aphids. So, as laine said, you can control them with a soap and water solution put through a spray bottle or tank sprayer, if you have a lot of plants. Most of the major pest control companies have jumped on the Organics bandwagon with a Soap Spray (it is actually a solution of essential fatty acids, not common soap),so you should be able to find it anywhere. Safer brand was the very first. Follow label instructions for dilution rate and suggested application timing. More is not better. I'd caution against spraying during heat. Late afternoon or evening might be best if it's very hot where you are. A really good garden know-how book is Rodale's Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening. Find it at a used bookstore. All the 60's hippies are downsizing now (like me) and these books are looking for good homes. Good luck! a good way to fight them is with lady bugs, you can buy them at home depot. (MORE)
The USDA says that the average is around 15 pounds. However thisnumber ranges a lot depending on how good your soil is and whattype of plant you're planting. In general - if a plant is fed well it can do 15-45 pounds. If it'sspecial types it can grow 100+ pounds (but that world recordrange).
