Tomato Plant Leaf Curl

TN55TN55 Posts: 1
I'm growing tomato plants for the first time.  They have been outside for about 4 weeks.  Lower leaves are now curling.  I've been giving some water every other day and feeding once a week.  Is the curling due to over watering, under watering or over feeding?  I'd be grateful for any advice.

    I think, though I could be wrong, that the curling is due to low night time temperatures.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    I agree - fluctuating temperatures are the likely cause - mine are in a g/h and I find that the tomato plant closest to the greenhouse door often has the same due to the draught.
    They should mostly sort themselves out over the course of a few days, but some may stay a bit curly - not really a problem
