My tomato plants have some cold damage on some of the leaves. Will this stunt them? They were in my garden shed when it turned cold last week. Should I just clip off the damaged leaves and hope for the best?
Keep the leaves: there's undamaged area there which can make energy for your plant.
Agree. Just leave it alone and protect it from further damage if needed. The overly damaged leaves will eventually fall off on their own.
Thanks very much for your advise. It was 88 degrees yesterday and today has gone down to 44 and may freeze by tomorrow morning. I have brought them all into the house tonight. Tomorrow night will be colder. I am going to be more careful with them from now on.
IMO that looks more like sunburn than frostbite. Did you harden them off? Are you sure there was frost?
There wasn't frost but it got down to about 32 or 33 degrees and my garden shed is missing half its roof. Storm last summer blew off half the roof and it hasn't been repaired yet. Your right, it does look like sunburn now that you mention it.
Maybe could be sunburn since the roof isn't all there but the problem seemed to start after that cold night. They almost drowned from the last rain. I think all that water probably took away all the nutrients out of the pot. My poor tomatoes are having a rough start this year.
