Q. Has anyone Had trouble with Tough Boy Hybrid tomato plants?

This year I decided to try Tough Boy hybrid tomato plants. They don’t want to grow and the leaves are curled and small. Are they disease prone? What can I do?

There are also a few other things that could be causing the curling. This article may help:
