I have two potted tomato plants that were thriving, but now are failing. One is
a cherry tomato plant that was yielding LOTS of beautiful and tasty fruit.
After the first large batch, the leaves started turning brown and yellow and
there has been NO more new growth in several weeks...not leaves or blossoms. I
have fertilized and both are planted in a potting mix.
The second is a "patio" tomato plant that has only grown about 1 tomatoe out of
each bunch of blossoms. The growing tomatoes look fine, but are taking FOREVER
to turn red. The other blossoms either yielded fruit that failed to ever grow
or no fruit at all. The plant itself looks fairly healthy except that it has
also had NO new growth (leaves or blossoms) for several weeks.
We have had LOTS of rain in the past few weeks (I live in SE Kentucky) and am
wondering if root rot could be a problem. If so, can this be resolved?
thanks for any help,
