I bought 2 tomato plants money spinner & ailsa craig, planted outdoors in June in a shelltered sunny spot. Lots of big green fruit on both plants but no sign of them turning red, is it too late now for them to ripen and if so what did I do wrong?
Noticed today that a lot of the tomatoes in my greenhouse are developing clusters of white rings, slightly raised on the skin. They look very similar to pictures of tomatoes with ghost spot. What can I do? Can I prevent it spreading? Are affected tomatoes inedible? Will I be able to grow tomatoes in greenhouse next year?
Tomatoes been eaten and leaves the same
Should I be cutting of all the side leaves, without fruits, on my tomatoes plants, or shold I keep some on? Thanks, Maire
I have a plastic greenhouse and I am growing, aubergine, melon, cucumber, chillies and tomatoes (big boy, moneymaker) I bought some of the tomato plants from a garden centre and others I was given. The leaves on my tomatoes are beginning to go yellow at the ends, this gardaully creeps up the leaves to the stem of the plant, they then turn brown and detach from the stem. There are lots of flowers but no fruit forming, the flowers are just falling off. What is it and how do I resolve this problem?
I am growing 24 tomato plants in my tunnel. 7 varieties. Moneymaker, Big Boy, Brandywine, Gardeners delight, Red Cherry, Cristal and Roma VF. All grown from seed. problem with Roma: Pinched out side shoots, same as others, then found all Roma had stopped producing growing points at top. So next time a sideshoot appeared I tried to leave it so it would continue to grow. But the plants are now a complete mess, sideshoots everywhere and hardly any decent fruits. I'm disappointed because I was looking forward to getting nice plum tomatoes. All others (except Gardeners Delight and Red Cherry that have been attacked by greenfly) are doing fine. What am I doing wrong with Roma? Is it really for growing outside as a sprawling bush?
Sun Gold tomatoes are supposed to be cherry type but they are growing much larger, bigger now than medium tomatoes. What's the reason?
Can you tell me why tomato leaves are looking like rolled up cigarettes? Sun Gold variety.
What do you think are the tastiest tomatoes? Ive grown shirley this year and am disappointed with the taste.
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!
i am growing tomatoes for the first time i have noticed flower bulbs have appeared however the top leaves inc vines have all become tightly twisted downwards.! i have checked for any insects , all the leaves are a healthy green . the plant looks odd as the bottom larger leaves are normal and then you have the smaller and smallest ones all tightly twisted into a ball. please advise it wiould be very much appreciated.
My neighboring allotment has potato blight, I have tomatoes in bags in an open tunnel beside them. Should I spray immediately or wait until there is a warning, when the weather is damp? I keep the foliage as dry as possible but there is some humidity in the tunnel. No sign of blight on the tomatoes yet.
I installed a greenhouse for the first time this year. I have tomato plants grown from seed and from purchased seedlings and they are all failing: the plants are small and the foliage is speckled and quite yellowed. I have tried feeding them tomato food with no success. I recently put in a cucumber plant bought at a plant sale and the same has happened. Is this because it's too hot, too cold, too much direct sun, or what would you suggest? Many thanks
Is it worthwhile cultivating seedlings from old fallen tomatoes. I have a few growing in greenhouse.or should I just grow from new seeds this year?
Last year I had a problem with my tomatos some sort of fungus appeared on the leaves. I brought one of my plants to the local garden centre and they were unsure what the problem was suspecting it was a fungus but not sure. They then gave me a spray for the tomatoes they thought would fix the problem but it didnt. I thought it might have been my fault as I grew the plants from seeds. So this year I went to my local garden centre and bought the plants but the same problem us starting again. I have no idea what to do!! I have attached a photo of the problem. I really hope you can help as the joy of going into my green house is diminishing.
