young tomato plants

Posted: 18/05/2012 at 14:07

my tomato plants leaves have started going yellow on the leaf ends, and i have used the plastic support pots which raise them up slightly from the grow bag for the first time.Usually I just pop them into grow bag.   any ideas why leaves going yellow and crispy dry brown on ends.  its not the small young bottom leaves im talking about, its the ones above, the larger leaves.?  And Im unsure how much water to give them and whether I just water the trough part of the plastic support pots.  Inherited these support pots and no instructions with them.  unsure on how much water to give them and where i put the water....just under the plant, or in the trough part of the support posts will the roots grow down to reach the water?  any ideas would be welcome.  thks.

I have Just planted tomatoes (small plants bought from garden centre) Shirley variety, and planted with those green plastic pots, which you push into the whole of the grow bag. my tomato leaves are starting to go yellow on the ends? I forgot to loosen the soil in the actual grow bag. I'm also unsure how to water with these raised plastic planter things that sit on top of the grow bag. (bought from hilliers). the water is supposed to seep through little tubes which stick into the grow bag> any ideas why

ive just planted tomatoes into those green plastic raised pot planters that you stick on top of the grow bag, and my newly bought shirley tomatoes leaves are starting to go yellow and dry on the ends? I forgot to break up the packed soil in grow bag and am wondering wether to take the tomatoes out of these raised plastic planters which raise the plants, loosen up soil in grow bag and just replant the plants straight into grow bag? any ideas why the leaves are turning yellow. only bought the plants 2 wks ago.? thanks
