I'm new to the forum...and new to any type of vegetable gardening. I decided to try growing container tomato plants this year (for some reason!). I'd been getting blossom drop, but now I've been seeing more tomatoes develop. However, I had someone tell me that the tomato plants were leggy, that they didn't like water. Then, another person said that they like moisture. An additional person suggested too much nitrogen. Now, I'm worried about fungus! Silly me: I'd thought that I would plant a tomato plant and it would grow the way it should!
Having absolutely no prior experience or knowledge, how do I diagnose a problem correctly? How do I know that the soil has the nutrients it needs? I'd planted them with earthworm castings, and I reapplied every two-three weeks, putting them on top of the soil, then watering until I saw water drain from the bottom.
I've got photos, but can't seem to upload them. Too large?
