Q.Heirloom Tomatoes

Anonymous added on May 13, 2014 | Answered

We bought 5 heirloom tomato plants. Four (4) are planted in the ground and the fifth one is planted in a large pot. Due to space constraints, the ones in the ground were planted between the garlic. The one in the pot is doing very well but the ones in the ground are not doing as well. I don’t see any bugs, etc. I water them every morning (except when it has rained). Why are the ones in the ground not doing as well?

They may have too much water. They only need 2 inches per week. They may also have a disease that was in the soil in the ground. This article will outline a few of the most common: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/tomato-diseases.htm
