I have 2 growbags in a polytunnel each with 2 tomato plants. The leaves on one of the plants is wilting. If I'm watering incorrectly surely both plants in this bag should be affected ? What am I doing wrong?
The leaves of my tomato plants are beginning to curl up at the edges.This happened the last couple of years but they always recovered fairly well.Is there some deficiency in the soil.I sow the tomato plants in well manured ground(well rotted horse manure) in the polytunnel.
Recently erected a polytunnell & planted my crop and have now found loads of leatherjacket pests. Can you please tell me how I can treat these without damaging the crop? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have a polytunnell 25' x 14' approx with one entrance door. Plants tend to wilt from the heat on warm days even though the door is left open. Do I need a second opening at the opposite end of the polytunnell for air to circulate or can I do anything else to remedy this problem. Plants are watered every evening after sun down.
Just wondering should my calla lilies have begun to show yet - I planted them outdoors about the 10th March and there is still no sign of them breaking through the soil - what can I do about them? I planted gladiolus at the same time and they are popping up now.

Had tomato seedlings in plastic 3 tier greenhose for few days. Planned to pot on this weekend.

I saw your reply re woodlice, natures dustmen etc. but last year they certainly ate the roots of my cucumber, I have masses of them again this year in my p.t. I garden organically in the p.t. so dont use pestcides, is there anything I can do to get rid of them? my husband suggested Jeyes Fluid (put in during the winter) but we are too late now to use it, and I am worried that it shouldnt be used in a p.t. anyway. Can you help me please?
