Tomato rotation

Asked May 8, 2020, 2:36 PM EDT

I have a raised garden bed that is about 15 feet long. I usually plant 4 tomatoes in one 5 foot section. I rotate them to a different 5 foot section each year. Is that enough rotation or should they be planted in a completely different bed?

Thank you for your question. They should be rotated into ‘new’ soil every 4 years. This Extension article explains why, what and how: https://hort.extension.wisc.edu/articles/using-crop-rotation-home-vegetable-garden-0/ Good luck!
