I have a tomato plant I purchased from HD, and the leaves have started to curl into themselves. I have watered it generously, but they are still curled. I do not see any kind of bugs on them anywhere. What is the problem..Bonnie

The shapes of tomato leaves vary depending upon variety. Some leaves are smooth and look like the leaves on potato plants and others are wrinkled and more 'tomatoey' looking. The weather can also have an affect on how leaves look. Unless the leaves are distorted and thick, I wouldn't be too concerned about their appearance. As the weather warms the newly forming leaves should have a more normal look.
