My tomatoes have curled leaves virtually all over the plants. I grow three plants in a growbag every year, feed as regime requires and water every day.

I get this leaf curl every year and the plants produce wonderful fruit so am I worrying un-necessarily or what? Please let me know so I can put mt my worrying away.

I think it is fine - my tomatoes curl their leaves right up, especially the new leaves.  In fact I think it is a sign that you are giving them a nice amount of water;  it is when the leaves un-curl that I know I've been neglecting them and they need a soak!

Hi John, my tomatoes 'individual' leaves curl in towards the centre sometimes and its only the ones closest to the greenhouse door and according to Monty Don its because of the cold which seems logical.  I also get new sets of leaves that seem to almost curl and twist into bundles, not sure what causes this, they are healthy looking though.
