Why are my tomato plants leaves wilting.

Asked July 30, 2016, 12:18 AM EDT

I planted some tomato plants in late June. They were doing great but they are wilting at the bottom along with some of the flowers. What do I do? please Help me save my plants? Is it overwatering or underwatering? Tell me I can't tell. Thanks, Ben

Hello, please let us know where this tomato plant is located. If it is outside of the US - what country? If it is inside the US, what state and county? This way it will be easier for us to diagnose the problem and assign the question to the best expert.

Based on the amount of wilting, and the soil moisture level it looks like you aren't giving them enough water. If you put your finger half an inch into the soil and it is dry then they need more water. With container tomatoes, you likely will need to water them at least once a day.
