Q. We leave in Norway and are having a bit of trouble with our Tiger tomato plants. They were grown from seeds and are currently outside on the patio (looking out south-south-west). They are getting plenty of sun and warmth but the plants are just not happy at the moment and I am wondering if it's a combination of things. I read on your website (wonderful reference to us thank you!) something about purpling veins and a lack of phosphorus ... this could very well be one of the problems since I haven't fertilized (the compost I have used was supposed to slow release the fertilizer). I don't think it's a fungus disease, because it's not spots we're looking at (see pictures).
Actually I'm having trouble figuring out if I'm under-watering or over-watering. I read that "at the height of summer" the plants should be watered 2-3 times a week. The last couple of weeks we have been watering them 0.75 to 1 quart of water every other day. Are they rotting?
I have loved and nurtured my plants from seeds to grown plants, please help!
Q. Three elements may be contributing to your tomato plants' struggles with purpling on leaves.
