why have the leaves of my tomatoes in the greenhouse gone purple and are withering they started out oksome of the plants have actually died. I grow toms each year and have never had this before?



So far as I can work out it is due to the fluctuations in temperature. We are still having cool night and then, hot, warm or cool days. Our leaves look the same and it isn't blight.

Two of our plants died and the others have scrappy little tomatoes on them.

Difficult if, like ours, they are supported by strings etc. We keep the door open and have taken a couple of the panes of glass out to keep the air moving through. Mind you it doesn't get that hot here...
