black opal tomato plant

I think it will be fine - it might just be later to get to it's fruiting stage - none of my 27 varied tomatoes in pots outside have any fruit set yet.  

I wouldn't worry about the colour of the foliage - it's quite usual for plants that have strongly coloured flowers or fruit, to have slightly similar foliage.  If you think of some deep red roses they can have quite dark foliage. 

Some interesting info about Black Opal here http://mygarden.rhs.org.uk/blogs/graham_rice/archive/2012/10/28/tomato-black-opal-new-black-cherry-tomato-from-dobies-and-suttons.aspx

I'm watching it too Fidget   in between walks around the garden just looking at things and putting the hedgehog food out ........... and eating a bowl of freshly picked raspberries and creme fraiche.

Sunny and 25.2C here   I think it'll be another evening to sit out as the sun goes down and watch the cockchafers in the treetops and wait for the bats to leave the chalk mines and fly over our garden on their way to the marshes

Yes Woody, if there's not a problem leave it alone - but a shallow dish of water left out would be good

I was reading the other day that because of hot dry weather some hedgehog sows are unable to find enough food and drink to make enough milk for their litters.  

Woody, have you got a Hedgehog rescue centre near you?
