Flea beetles

Zone Laurel, MD 20707 | paulettehoran1 added on July 16, 2017 | Answered

I read the article on flea beetles and I think that\'s the problem I have with my tomato plants. A lot of the leaves are full of tiny holes. They are planted in Miracle Grow gardening soil in a container, not in the ground. There are three small tomatoes growing very slowly. I\'m asking if they will be okay. There are many more tomato blooms but not any more tomatoes. I also have a rose bush which produced two pretty roses but after I clipped them, the leaves which also had many tiny holes as well all fell off and the bush looks dead even though I continue to water it. I know the tomatoes are annual, but I was wondering if the rose bush will come back next year. This was my first try at planting \"real\" plants on my new patio. So I was wondering also where the flea beetles could have come from. Thank you for your help.
