Improved light levels should help things along.

Good luck

Tomatoes

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.

Hello James

Incorporate as much organic matter as you can into the soil, farmyard manure, leaf mould, garden compost etc  - you'll find that worms will soon appear in your garden.

When we came here the soil was dry and thin and there were very few worms.  Three years of doing the above and whenever I turn any soil there are several worms to be seen. 

Whether your soil is thin and gritty or heavy clay, incorporating organic material will improve the fertility and drainage and increase the worm population.

Good luck 

HELLO FORKERS!

Interesting thread here http://www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/forums/general-wildlife/30539-garden-worm.html about knotted worms - it appears it's a reaction to hot dry weather.

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 ?

To return to slugs - I'm in OH's bad books now - I 'borrowed' half a pint of his best Adnams Broadside to fill three slugpubs - and managed to tip most of it over the carrots - he doesn't mind giving me beer to fill the slug pubs, but not to waste it 

I shall have to buy him some more
