Answer: Hi Tara,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The tomato plant is suffering a bit there and there are a couple of things that we would recommend to alter to give it a bit more of a pep up!

Firstly, ensure that the plant is receiving full sun and not having any reflective sun from the fence behind it. The long length of the plant suggests that it is trying to seek some sun there.

Ensure that the soil is well watered but not too wet. Water in the morning and check the soil before each watering. If the soil is moist, water lightly, if wet don’t water. Ensure that the soil is also free draining you add a regular application of Dynamic Lifter to the soil as well to boost organic matter.

The leaves are suffering from a form of blight there. The base leaves are going first and the others follow as it works its way up the stem. This can be treated with Yates Tomato & Vegetable Dust.

If you do need any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards
