The Q&A Archives: Tomatoes

Question: I decided to grow tomatoes in large containers. they haven't really grown much in the last two weeks. I notice they are turning yellow. What you suggest to do?

Answer: Tomatoes thrive in sunshine and warm temperatures so I suspect the reason they are not growing well has to do with cool weather. As soon as things heat up, they should make up for lost time by growing by leaps and bounds. Tomato plants generally lose their lowest leaves, and it's nothing to be concerned about. They are concentrating on producing healthy new leaves, flowers and fruits.

Best wishes with your tomato plants!
