Bonnie Beef eater tomato plant

Zone Tulare, Ca I believe it's zone 11 | cactusman added on May 9, 2014 | Answered

I purchased a Bonnie Beef eater tomato plant this year and initially it was growing great. Now the leaves aren't lush and open but curled up and lighter in color planted in the ground. Got any ideas? I'm using either Osmocote or Miracle Grow granular slow release fertilizer. I live in the Fresno, Ca area and so far it hasn't been too hot.

It may be transplant shock or possibly fertilizer burn, if the fertilizer was put in direct contact with the roots.
