Help.... Because of our deer problem, I decided this year to put my tomatoes on the patio in pots (16"). I used miracle gro potting soil from Costco ... those enormous bags... and have them sitting in a nice sunny spot. They are growing nicely, but I notice the lower leaves, and now even some of the new ones, are curling in on themselves, turning yellow and brown around the edges, and obviously on their way to la la land. Some of the blossoms are also drying up and dropping. Ahhhh me--do you have any suggestions?

Could it be sporadic watering? Mine did that too, and I got more regular about watering after that !

Keep the soil consistantly moist while still allowing it to dry out a bit in between waterings. Prune the discolored leaves and discard in the trash. Curling leaves will usually correct itself. Are just the blossom petals drying and falling or the entire flower and part of the stem(abscission)?
