Hi,

Sounds like it could be Nitrogen defficiency ..
"Nitrogen deficiency:Very slow growth of plants, followed by progressive pale green color moving from tip and young leaves back to more mature leaves. Leaves are small, thin, perhaps with purple veins. Stems eventually brown and dry off. Flower buds yellow and drop.

SOURCE: We have bugs on our tomato plants long bodies,

I forget what those are called. But usually a little dish soap and water in a spray bottle takes care of them.

SOURCE: what is the cure for yellow leaf on tomato plants

Usually fungus. You need to plant tomatoes where the sun will dry the overnight dew quickly each day. Don't water at night (water in the morning). Try to water the soil and not the leaves.

Ask your nursery for a fungicide (or if something else is causing yellow leaf in your area). They will know and guide you.

Best set to pull off the dead/yellow leaves to limit cross contamination and spread of the fungus/mold.

How do I recognise tomato blight ?? do the leaves go brown and how can I treat it


prevention is better than cure. It is a fungal attack. Pictures and info in the link.

How do you prevent early blight?
  • Rotate crops. Early blight remains active for a year. Spores can be dormant in the soil for several years.
  • Plant disease-resistant hybrids to strengthen your plant's chances of being blight-free.
  • Plant tomatoes in a raised bed to improve drainage and prevent diseases from spreading.
  • Give tomato plants extra space (more than 24 inches) to let air to move among leaves and keep them dry.
  • Water the soil - not the plants - to prevent splashing. Avoid overhead watering.
  • Mulch with black plastic or landscape fabric to prevent fungus from spreading up onto leaves.
  • Stake tomato plants for better circulation.
  • Remove and destroy affected plants at the end of the season.

When tomato plants put on green tomatoes. yellow leaves form at bottom with black spot inside. Usually killing plant. can you help?


Might be Tomato Mosaic. Plant should be destroyed as it can spread to other plants. Tobacco on hands can start it off strangely enough. Or could be too much watering at one go, moderate watering about twice a week in dry hot weather, and a little shade while the leaves are still tender. Feed often, but not too strong.

Tomato plants have had no flowers.Mainly Grosse Lisse. Grown in plant bed with 8 hours sun per day. Fertilised dug in with pot ash before planting.Just under a metre tall with good green foliage


Interesting. I have three tomato plants this year which bore no fruit. One was a $20 grafted tomato and was huge, but no flowers.

A horticulturalist told me he though I had a virus. I will be sterilizing the soil with Jeyes Fluid twice, now and about a month before planting.

Why home grown tomotos might turn black on the bottom?


Here you go. I found this to help you out.



Tomato plants tend to develop blossom-end rot when they receive uneven amounts of moisture. For example, plants that go from being too dry to too wet, then back, are susceptible to the disease. To prevent this, water your tomatoes regularly. Removing affected fruit can prevent blossom-end rot from spreading to new tomatoes. Tomato plants need 1 inch of water per week, on average.

Why do the leaves on tomato plants near the ground turn yellow?


The main cause is lack of nutrients because the top leaves are blocking the sunlight. This is not something to worry about. A tomato plant cannot support all of the leaves and have great fruit production too. You should selectively prune some of the leaves on mature plants to promote large tomatoes.

I have 4 tomato plants that are full of large green tomatoes but they will not turn red. What can I do to get them to ripen?


Grant, an interesting problem. Not knowing the environment, I searched for methods to force-ripen tomatoes; this site looks promising:

http://homeguides.sfgate.com/force-tomatoes-ripen-64525.html

If it's just too cold, the tomatoes won't ripen on their own. The above site advocates picking the tomatoes and bringing them inside to ripen, among several other potential solutions.

There are also recipies you can try with green tomatoes (other than frying). After the first frost of the season, I made a tomato chutney that was excellent following this instructable:
