The flowers on the first truss of my tomato plant have begun to brown and wilt. Do I need to hand pollinate? I am growing in a greenhouse and watering pretty much daily.
I bought a plastic hanging basket preplanted with cherry tomatoes. They are just ripening but the plant appears to be dying and half the tomatoes are diseased looking . What is it and what can we do?

As a first time tomato grower, what do I need to do to get best results?
I am growing some tomato plants in a polytunnel (first year) and one of them seems to have developed a problem. The leaves at the top have become rather crispy and shrivelled. The rest of the leaves seem to be fine albeit slightly leathery. None of the other plants have this problem and seem to be growing well. I always keep the soil adequately watered but not soaking wet.I gave it a feed about 2 weeks ago when the flowers started appearing and it looked in really good condition at the time. As you know the weather recently has been quite cold so I was wondering if the temperature fluctuations could have had an adverse effect. Someone has also suggested possible damage to the roots.
Is it ok to use home made seaweed liquid feed on tomatoes?
I have 4 varieties of tomato plants - 'Golden Sunrise', 'Red Cherry', Gardeners Delight' and 'Moneymaker'. Whill any of these grow outside?
I have tomato seedlings that the leaves have started turning a whitish colour, they are also pale green in colour. They are about 3" to 5" tall. They are Money Maker, Alicante, Ailsa Craig and tumbling tom. I grew them from packet seed,as I do every year with very good results. There is about 300 plants. I usually supply family and friends and a local shop takes the surplus. I am not a comercial grower, I just cannot give plants to anybody in case it is a virus etc.
