Tomato Plants a little yellow

Post  ttx599 on 5/29/2013, 2:39 pm

I have been looking around the forum for some information and help on what might be causing my tomato plants to be more yellow than green. Last year I had a similar problem - I did get an ok harvest of tomatoes but not nearly as much as my first 2 years. Is there something I can put in the soil to ammend it to help them out?

Thanks!

When you say first two years, do you mean with a SFG? When you replenish your garden how do you go about adding the compost? Have you added more Mel's Mix?

Yes, my first 2 years with SFG... this is my 4th year.

I have rotated the tomatoes to different areas.

Every spring we add more MM to the garden - not much, just a little to top it off and then we work it through. Everything else in my garden (beans, squash, peppers, cukes, broccoli, lettuce) does well.

Ok, good to know. So my suggestion is to follow Mel's advice and add compost only, no need to add more Mel's mix. The compost is actually what will feed your garden,

I had that problem this year and after adding some tomato food (higher nitrogen) they greened up. I have also heard epson salts are good with tomato plants too.
