yellow tomato leaves

Ann Kelly asked 12 years ago

Can you recommend a spray for the leaves, i think it is magnesium deficiency. Also can you recommend a compost or fertilizer to mix in to prevent this problem in future.

Yellowing can be caused by a variety of reasons, including drought and too much water.

Make sure teh compost is kept moist, not wet.

If this is, and has been the case, apply a tomato food or a general plant food, which contains trace elements in cluding magnesium. 

Dig in some well rotted compost or manure before planting.
