Are tomato plants perenial or annual? I got lots of new plants from those that self seeded but what if I don’t take out this year’s plants? Can they be treated as perenials. They are in a tunnel.

Strictly speaking tomatoes are short-lived perennials but usually treated aas annuals and started from seed each year. They are likely to be killed by frost in a tunnel during the winter.
