Q.Tomato Leaves Drying Up

Anonymous added on August 4, 2012 | Answered

For many years, we have planted tomato plants in our garden. This year, on most of the plants, a number of the leaves and stems are drying out and dying. This is occuring at various locations on the plants. The plants are still bearing tomatoes, but the foliage is not thick and green like in past years. In June, bark was placed around the plants and throughout the garden. Any suggestions?

Tomato viruses are so common but I always considered myself lucky to get fruit before they sucummed to it. Be sure not to plant tomatoes in the same place repeated years since this only increases virus attack. Put spent plants in the garbage rather than compost or recycling.
