tomatoe plants dying in SGF

Post  stanfil2 on 6/8/2010, 5:51 pm

I have one of my SGF's set for 2' by 7" by 18" deep. I planted 6 different kinds of tomatoes in it form at about the same time. I got some production then I noticed the leaves changed from dark green to yellow then brown for right to left and bottom up. I've feed them (organic) and still it is happening. Any ideas? My wife says I over watered them but a soil moisture meter doesn't indicate that. The 2 4x4's in front are doing fine. I filled them with Mel's mix from the natural gardener here in Austin texas.

You could have a magnesium deficiency -- my Mel's mix was completely devoid of it as far as I could tell. You might want to click on the worm icon in my signature and see if any of those pictures match what you are experiencing. My Mel's mix was also nitrogen deficient in one bed, but OK in the others. But since you used the same mix in all you beds that might not be the case.

dying tomatoes in SGF

Post  stanfil2 on 6/8/2010, 7:16 pm

it also traveled from the right to the left over the course of about 2 to 3 weeks. You could watch it move .
