    My tomato leaves are curling. Should I be worried or is it just all the wet weather of late?

    Ta.

    Have they changed colour? Do you have a photo?

    If my tomatoes were showing signs of unhappiness I would probably give them a bit of food. Maybe a mix of blood and bone, and chicken manure pellets. And a drink of epsom salts, seaweed mixture and liquid plant food. I you’ve had as much rain as we have, some nutrients might have been washed out of the soil.

    While my approach is probably overkill, I’ve never killed a tomato plant by taking it. I just figure it covers all possible deficiencies and the soil probably won’t complain about a bit of food. 😉

    BTW: I’m not talking whole bucket loads of food, just a handful or two of the dry mix and a watering can of the wet.

    No photos as yet, will try to master that process. Thanks for your help Herbman. And the leaves are still a nice deep green, just curly…. the plant is an heirloom variety, maybe the leaves just do that??

    It could be the tomato leaf curl virus. This page might help:
