 Any help Punkdoc? 

Tomato leaves curling?

That's usually a sign of stress, possibly over-watering.  I'd reduce the watering - use the 'finger test' by inserting a finger into the compost and only watering when the soil is dry an inch below the surface - that should help alleviate the situation.  

Tomatoes don't need half as much water as people think

Pictures would be good!  To post a pic on there you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where your type your post, and follow the instructions - sadly it doesn't work for phones ... yet!

If it doesn't work let us know.

I'm wondering if you're giving them too much water - that can sometimes make the leaves curl downwards - is that what they're doing?  I really don't water my tomatoes until the compost is quite dry.  

But I'm concerned that you say it's stopped growing ... we'd better see the pics!

Oh, and do you know the variety of the plant in question?

Morning Clari - it was hot and sticky last night - I was tossing and turning and having a drink of water all night 

Yes, I used to cycle for miles and miles as a youngster - parents nowadays would have kittens!!!

 I had no idea that you had misunderstood me, you should've said.

There are loads of posts on the forum referring to Nutcutlet as Nut and it's absolutely not in my nature to make personal attacks.

Hope we can all be friends.

I think Verdun always has first Dibs on it   I was talking to a chap from the West Country the other day who was complaining about what awful weather they have down there for gardening - makes me think that either Verdun has rose-tinted specs or has organised his own special micro-climate
