    We have tomato plants in the greenhouse in grow bags. All of them have leaves that are shrivelled (closed up?). My son maintains that it is due to over feeding but I have only fed once and they had closed up leaves before that. He thinks it is the gro bags themselves (with the wrong fertiliser in?). We had no problems at all last year with a mini greenhouse. This one is a 10 x 6 with two auto opening roof windows. I have uploaded a pic of one plant. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Its quite normal, but might be down to very bright sunlight under glass.

      It sometimes happens around this time of year when tomatoes are growing fast, usually after being planted. It never harms them and they grow out of it in a couple of weeks.

        When I used to grow them (under glass) it happened to me a couple of times. As Pete and John have said, it’s nothing to worry about.
