Yellow leaves on my potted tomato plants

Asked July 15, 2018, 11:44 AM EDT

Within the last few weeks, more and more yellow leaves are showing upon my potted cherry tomatoes. I used a little organic tomato fertilizer but appears to have no effect. All the plants are begging to produce cherry tomatoes

Your plants are suffering from environmental/nutritional stress. Some possible factors:
crowding in the container, excess reflected heat from railing and other structures, inconsistent watering, nutrient deficits.

Your plants have a heavy fruit load and the light leaf color indicates insufficient nitrogen. Continue to fertilize every two weeks according to label directions and remove yellow/brown lower leaves. jt
