    Default Tomato plant problem.

    Any idea what is wrong with this tomato plant. The growing tip seems very shrivled and the new leaves don't look good.





    Some of the leaves look like this too...

    What compost are they growing in?
    Is it one plant or all of them?

    Are they crowded & this one’s not getting much water? Are you watering everyday for the plant roots to not dry out in any area? It looks like the leaves are slowly dying how they’re going brown there on the furthest point in that last photo.

    Too much sun by the looks of it, the brown leaves are burnt, some shading and regular watering helps, they should pick up ok if they are given a bit of protection and ventilation.

    Compared to last summer's heatwave when all my tomato plants were fine I find it strange that they'd get sun damage this year. I'll try though.

    Thanks for replies.

    Having said that it's only 2 out of 15 plants.
