The leaves on one of my tomato plants are curling upward. Any ideas what it needs? It's watered with a red mulch film on top of soil in a 16" pot. It feels nice and moist. It's a plant I received from a friend as a sucker she plucked off one of her plants and I rooted it in a bucket of water and then planted it in 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 potting soil, and 1/3 composted horse manure. It's now taller then me with about 4 or 5 fruits on it. I think she called it a "yellow stripey" tomato. Appreciate your help!

Examine the leaves for bugs- like leaf rollers, leaffooted bugs, spiderwebs that could mean other bugs, some leaves just roll,

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
