Ive had great success from baby yellow plum varieties keeping as little leaf growth and shots as possible and growing runners out on string. has given me very good crops off each plant. But little success from larger varieties my plants seem to end up stunted and with only two or three on it by the end of the summer, any idea's what I could be doing wrong I feed with a branded tomato food as stated and use the same grow bags which contain seaweed. I cant get why the cherry type varietys go mad but I struggle else where. Thanks in advance for any advice
Not sure what you mean by keeping as little leaf growth as possible. The plants need leaves for photosynthesis. You might get away with reduced photosynthesis for smaller varieties but larger ones need as much goodness as they can get from photosynthesis.

This is going to sound silly but - I grow tomatoes from seed in greenhouse when all crop has been picked do you get rid of all of the tomato or do you keep the remaining plant perhaps cutting back for the following year? I've also started fresh each time?
Start afresh each year-it is just not worth the effort to try and overwinter old plants -compost them.
I agree with Geoff - start afresh each year
