Tomato leaf problems - help

Posted: 07/07/2012 at 10:17

Why are you watering them so much-this is the problem-there is a tomato expert on this forum-italiophile-who constantly says they need tough love to grow properly.

Easeback on the watering-let them dry out-remove some of the yellowing leaves -only a few -not all and they will be fine

Just not so much water.

What's the weather like in your area?

It was lovely on Thursday-the sun shone at Wimbledon yesterday but not here-and this morning it is that relentless drizzle again-but there are no floods- not like some parts-there is no end in sight-we might just emigrate

Well it is paining again-the height of Summer was last Thursday-when will there be a prolonged heat wave?-they are still saying it will stay like this for at least 2 more weeks?

It is a slug's life

Not going out.

woodlice only eat dead and rotting wood.


Sorry-that is wrong- they eat dead or decaying plant matter-there is a lot on the woodlouse here

Woodlice will not do damage to the strawberries in the first instance-they wait for birds ans slugs to do the dirty work first then move in-they are the hyenas of the insect world- a secondary predator if you like

They eat plant debris and such like- so are quite useful in that sense-not really a pest- more of a nuisance.

You are feeding the plant throught the leaves-it is called foliar feeding and the plant can take food through the leaves as well as via roots-clever isn't it?

I still say he has a great chance-Federer beat a below par player today -the Wimbledon crowd will be backing the home boy-that is worth a few points.

It is going to be a long Sunday afternoon

It is odd about the leaves opening and closing-it is obviously a weird one -someone might recognise it-were there any other seedlings?

Well it isn't a cucumber-so I withdraw my guess
