Do read the posts above. There is no need to buy any seeds unless you have removed the top layer of soil and you have areas of bare earth.

tomato plants in containers all going pale

Saying that, your plants do sound hungry!

And keep it out of the sun, the leaves scorch easily.

Mine has been in the same large pot for years; I'm told they like to be confined.
