The Q&A Archives: Tomato plant diseases

Question: I have had 2 tomato plants that look as if they are drying up but yet they are being watered. What can I do?

Answer: LaVue,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Take care not to overwater your tomatoes as soggy soil damages roots by excluding oxygen. This can result in wilting, even in standing water.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
