I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have 3 tomato plants that are growing quite well. I have them in my conservtory but over the last few days the leaves have become really limp and today yellow spots/edges have appeared. I am not sure what the problem is. Think they re dying as the flowers that were there are disappearing!! I have kept them pretty well watered,(often let them get dry as afraid of overwater). I fed them tomato feed once a week for the last 2 weeks. Can see roots at bottom of pot – Should I transplant even as quite tall and well established. Maybe pots bit small?!Any advice!

This is probably scorching due to uneven and inadequate watering. Plants in small pots are more vulnerable as they dry out more quickly.

Tomatoes abort the flowers if they are under stress.

Makle sure to water regularly. The compost should always but just moist, not wet, not standing in water.

Feed only when the compost is moist and once every two weeks is enough. Too much feeding can aggravate the effects of drought.
