Too many reasons to count... maybe you can do a google search and compare what your plants look like to some of the images you find on google and go from there? Good luck! :)

Are they planted directly in the ground or in pots?
What kind of soil?
Have you fertilized them and if so: with what?

It could really be anything, but usually it is a lack of any mineral or similar.
:)

I fertilize my tomatoes with "nettle water" and sometimes (when I have access to it) with horse manure.


A friend of mine puts a roach in the soil (in the pot, in the greenhouse!) And this works as fertilizer throughout the season!

A roach? As in a bug roach? Or a marijuana joint butt end roach? :lol: Sorry I had to ask...both seem weird :p

WBF, that's what I was wondering, lol. If it's pot - the tomatoes might or might not get better, but I'll bet they won't care! :hide

Meh, they'll just be lazy, won't run up the stakes and won't produce fruit...and probably eat the whole rest of the garden :lol:

Are they in the greenhouse or ground? If greenhouse, possible over or under watering. If in the ground, the same, plus possible bug pressure or disease.
