The Q&A Archives: Tomato plants

Question: I have a tomatoe plant (Do not know what kind of tomatoes) but the plant is dying. What can I do? Also I had the starter kitchen herb set and all of them died as well. What am I doing wrong that all of the plants that I want to grow die?

Help because I really want to do a small garden of vegetables on my back patio. Some squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, and whatever else I feel like. Can you please help. I am also on a budget. How do I get started and not kill anything that I am trying to grow.

The following web sites are a wealth of information on growing a vegetable garden in Georgia:

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
