Re: Question about growing tomatoes

Thanks for the replies. I was under the impression nematodes could build up in the soil and that's part of the reason for rotation. Maybe that's just an Australian problem? My toms did die off a lot but still kept ripening, not sure what was going on, so I'll check their roots when I pull them up.

It is a new garden bed, it had pittosporum trees in it before, so I will pull out the toms, add lots of compost and plant some oats or other nitrogen fixing plants in there over winter.
