As per the above tomatoe sowing time is about to begin. I am planning to sow cherry tomatoes seed in pots in beginning of next month. Question is how deep we have to sow the seed. Also need advice on water frequency and how much water. Do we need to use "grow more" or it is not required

The above mentioned seasons are generally suited for most areas, but there are certain exceptions varying from crop to crop. For example tomato can be grown year around in Karachi or similar areas, but you cannot grow it in those parts of country where frost is certain also there are different varieties for different seasons for example summer Radish variety is different from winter variety.
Early and late sowing can also be beneficial, prepare seedling of spring planting in winter underneath plastic sheets & fall planting in summers underneath shades these crops will provide you off-season vegetables which are otherwise very costly in market.

It is not possible to cover all aspects in vegetable calendar, so I will try to post individual topics on each vegetable but this calendar might be helpful.
My tomato plants have dried out even though proper watering is done. Is it normal or is it bit early because last
year they were fruiting well into June.
