Newly transplanted tomato plants turning yellow

greenbeansMay 24, 2007

Ok -

I started my own tomato seedlings this year indoors and they looked great! Until I planted them outside. I'm hoping it's just a temporary stress from the move, but I'd like to hear what you all think...

The bottom leaves on most are turning yellow.

Some leaves, typically on the bottom, are curling a bit.

They're all less than a foot tall at this point.

I planted them in a new garden patch - I dug up some of our lawn last fall and added compost earlier this spring. Perhaps the drainage isn't very good?

probably just a temporary adjustment. Wouldn't worry about it too much.

Same boat here. I put half of mine out two weeks ago and the other half last weekend. I hardened them off for at least a week but when I put them in the ground they got a little yellow on me. I think it's just them adjusting to the outside world. The ones I put out two weeks ago are started to develop lots of new green leaves over the past few warm days, so I think they're okay. I also think it was a bit cold for them when I first put them out (I'm near the lake) and it took some warmer weather to get them growing.

Mine are sulking also. I agree with Mike, the cool nights are not doing the warm season vegs any favors. We haven't had much rain (by me at least) so water if dry.
