Tomato problems

Posted: 02/08/2013 at 10:40


 One of my plants has decided to wilt, pretty badly. I first noticed it about a week ago, I have increased the watering and given it an extra feed but there has been no change. I have now stopped watering it to see if that will help.

The plants on either side are fine (more or less)

Any ideas as to what is wrong?

Here are more detailed pics of the newer upper leaves, there is a bit of mottling but not a lot.

I am keen to heed any advice that is given but I am hesitant to re-pot the plants. They have been in the halos for 5-6 weeks now so there would be significant roots down into the growbags and also a significant plant growing up out of the halo - best way would be to cut into the halo but that would cause a lot of disruption to the plant. The growbags are a good size and I have only potted 2 plants per growbag. The halo I consider to be a small mound sticking up out of the growbag, watering is down into the growbag and feeding is into the halo. My ridge height is not very high so this year I used growbags to 'start' the plant at a lower level (I also dug a small trench to get the growbag even lower)

I don't like the sound of that, definitely not wet leaves in sun. Sounds like I need to clear out my greenhouse! All I have planted (this year) are grafted plants which are supposed to be disease resistant.

I know it is still quite early in the season but I am having the most successful season in the last 3 - but it is not withoutr it's problems.

I think I am suffering from a nitrogen deficiency, I have taken some photo's and would like some advice as whether I am right or wrong?



 I have fed them with Tomorite and trimmed of the worst off the brown leaves. The is the second time I have fed them and will increase that over the next fews days.

Am I on the right track?

I have some tomato plants that have a branch coming off the main stem with flowers on and at the end of the branch is what looks like a seperate branch with leaves on. The additional (continuation) branch has a thicker stem and typically grows in an upward direction.

Is there any action I should be taking - trim the branch at the end of the flowers maybe?

Not mine, I will beef up the fence so that they can't get access in future
