Leaves curling and going brown on the ends

I potted my tomato plant out yesterday and today the leaves are curling underand the tips turning you have any ideas? All the leaves seem to be affected by this not just the lower leaves but the new shoots at the top as well. I have felt the soil and it seems to be damp, so dont think it is a lack of water....could it be overwatering?

I think you may have overfed them.

do you have a solution or will the plant just die?

Hi Whenwe,
Loosen the soil round your plant, each time you water it, keep it out of the wind but do not let it get into very hot sun and see if it will grow out of it's trouble.
