Welcome! question re tomato leaves yellowing

Agree with Bambi - welcome very much to our forum, hope you find it friendly and helpful. Please repost your question in the Tomato section, lots more people will see it there. It's usually very helpful if you post a picture of what is going on. Here's a link to info on how to do that:

Be as specific as you can about what the problem is. For example it is normal for the oldest leaves at the bottom of the tomato plant to turn yellow and die off. As long as the plant is still making lots of new green leaves, that is not a problem. Did you mean more than that?

Sounds like a magnesium deficiency. Buy some “Epsom Saltsâ€

yellowing lower leaves.........

NOPE... DON'T WORRY!!!!!!!!!! It's NORMAL. As a tomato plant grows, nutrients from the LOWER LEAVES migrate to the formation of newer leaves & the lower leaves start to turn yellow, get spots and die. It's absolutely normal & will NOT affect the health of your plant. For COSMETIC purposes, just remove the yellowing leaves & the plant WILL BE FINE!!!!!!!!!!!
