Tomatoes are my most favourite things to grow. I've been very lucky with them, I've never had any problems growing them, I've never even been bothered by blight. Unfortunately, it looks like this may be the year when disaster has struck.
I sowed the seeds on the 8th of March and they germinated in no time. They were pricked out on the 26th of March after which time I let them settle in their pots before eventually moving them outdoors in to the mini greenhouse which is inside the larger greenhouse. I've always dealt with my tomatoes the same way and have never had any issues, but this year, the seedlings just haven't grown at all and they're looking very yellow rather than a lush green.
I think it may be down to the compost, I've got some other seedlings which aren't looking too healthy either, so I've bought fresh compost, repotted them, and they're now being mollycoddled on a bedroom windowsill where I can see a very slight improvement since these photos were taken.
The seedlings are quite sturdy little things so I'm hoping that this will do the trick and that they'll recover, but I've sown some more seeds just in case they don't. I may be too late sowing seeds now though, so I might have to resort to buying some plants this year. I'm hoping that I won't have to do that, but I shall make sure I've got some tomatoes to harvest later in the year come what may.
