A few weeks ago, I posted about my poorly tomato plants (thank you for all the helpful comments). They looked so miserable with their yellow droopy leaves and I had made various attempts to revive them to no avail.
Then…my mother visited. After looking at my poorly plants she declared that she was not surprised as it was far too cold at night in my greenhouse and they would be happier living in the conservatory for a few more weeks. I took note, as soon as she had left, naturally, and moved all 27 of the tomato plants up to the house.
A few weeks later they are looking much better. They have lovely, green new growth and they are getting very tall.
Tomatoes looking much healthier. Still a few yellow lower leaves but all top growth green and healthy.
In fact, they are now worrying me how well they are growing. I will need to put them out in a grow bag very soon. What do I do if it is still too cold in the greenhouse? I didn’t think it was too cold for them before but they have definitely improved with a warmer environment. I think maybe it was just too cold at night and too hot in the day, so the variation in temperature was huge.
The low temperature in our greenhouse has been partly due to a missing piece of glass. Last winter, a gust of wind blew the window open, flipping it over the top, and smashed the window pane; we just hadn’t got round to fixing it. I am pleased to report that I have been today to a glass supplier with the measurements and got a replacement piece for the window. I now just need Hubby to fix it. I hope this happens sooner rather than later as the thought of homing all 27 of my tomato vines in the house much longer is daunting.
