tomatoe help

Hereford, United Kingdom Gb

Hi everyone ive got loads of tomatoe plants that were growing really well,because of personal reasons i wasnt able to water them for i think around 3/4 days ive got back to them and now theyve all seem to gotten shrivelled leave,the stem looks healthy,ive watered them all and was just wondering if ive killed them or if i just have to wait for them to have a bit of food



Doesn't sound like they're dead, but obviously you've lost some leaves - it should reshoot new ones, but it may affect how many tomatoes you actually get.

Sorry to hear that Fgg - they should pick up, so long as they haven't gone 'crispy' in which case those bits are dead. You need to keep toms well watered at all times - every day or twice a day in really hot weather like last week. Also, do you have greenhouse shading? In the ghouse the sun gets too hot and damages the leaves otherwise. If you don't keep up with the watering your toms will get something called 'blossom end rot' which totally spoils them.
