Tomato plant growing tip distorted
Some of my tomato plants have suffered "wilt." In this case, the wilt is a purpling and curling of the leaves. They are shriveling and slightly distorted.
Some of the damage may be from waterlogged clay soil as well as current variable conditions - that is, hot days, cold nights. Am I right in thinking these are the causes? From Tomato Dirt pages, I realise that I have been watering too little, too often as I have also suffered a little blossom end rot.
And here I thought I knew how to grow tomatoes after all these years. Just shows you that every gardening year is a new experience.
