The Q&A Archives: Yellow Lower Leaves On Tomato Plants

Question: Why are my tomato plants yellow? I just planted two weeks ago and leaves closest to the ground are yellowing.

Answer: Marc,

That is a bit normal for tomatoes. It could be due to transplant shock, lack of moisture, soggy soil or lack of nitrogen. Fertilize them with a liquid plant food and be careful to keep them adequately moist, but not too wet.
