Upside Down Cherry Tomatoes

Anonymous added on May 28, 2016 | Answered

I planted my cherry tomato plants upside down but they wilted from insufficient water the second day. They have no leaves but the stems seem strong. Will they get new leaves and produce or should I plant new ones? I realized that they were getting insufficient water due to my oversight of not wetting the potting soil thoroughly before planting. These plants are in a greenhouse in zone 5 and have been well watered every day since the leaves wilted that second day.

Given that your tomatoes have no leaves I would recommend that you feed them them with a fertilizer high in nitrogen to promote leafy growth as well as continue to keep them watered.
