Tomato leaves curling
Just wanted to start posting on my tomato garden. Will start posting pictures soon.
My tomato plants (some of them) has inward curled leaves. I fertilized all plants by working it into and around the stem area soil few days ago. I did notice that soil in the top 4" was moist 24-hours after watering. I currently water the plants 3-times a week, for 20 minutes at 4 gal/hr drippers which are connected to 1/4" tube that is embeded 2" into the soil around the stem area. I suspect the curl could be the result of excessive watering. Although we have been hitting over 90 degrees on consistent basis and the plants get full sun from dawn to dusk, I believe that moisture is being retained by grass clippings that I am using as mulch and the lower part of the planter soil has some clay content.
All in all, plants appear very healthy and lots of flowers and some plants already got tomatoes on them. I did get and am getting some BER (blossom end rott) and this is the reason I am thinking about adjusting water schedule to 2 times a week, same time.
what have others done to their curling leaf tomato plant?
