Anyone know why my tomato plants (outdoor ) have leaves that are curling. it's not the dreaded blight is it ?

It won't be blight - that's horrid blotches on the stems and leaves.  

Can you post us a picture of them so we can see how they're curling ?

Leaf curling is usually down to draughts (assuming soil/water is ok)- don't think it'll do much damage, but if there's some sort of windbreak you can provide will help.

Plants by the greenhouse door often curl when the doors are open
Good luck!

they should be fine mine seem to always go through it at early stages but they come good don't worry

Yeah mine have started doing it, i'm assuming its weather related, thunderstorms followed by blazing sun and back again.

Tomato leaves usually curl because of temperature fluctuations.

 However, if tomato leaves roll inwards from the sides to the centre, this is usually due to over-watering.

sometimes they curl because they're happy!

That must be it ......they are happy!! Perhaps they have feelings like the crayfish !!!Thanks Welshonion
