    What have you sprayed against? image

    Can you post a photo of the tomatoes please ... whole plants and a closer view of the leaves ... start with the camera icon and follow instructions.  If it doesn't upload try reducing the size of the photo ... that usually works.

    The trick is - don't spray anything if you don't know what the issue is   image

    It's normal for some leaves to do that. They'll sort themselves out usually. It can be a lack of good air circulation or it can be that that the leaves haven't opened out fully. It's occasionally a bit of spider mite or similar, but you would see evidence of that.

    If you can post a photo, that will help. Click on the camera icon (top right ) and follow instructions. Images need to be no bigger than about 2.5MB to load easily.

    Agree with the above.

    Often leaf curl on toms is due to draughts. The ones next to my g/h door often get it. It's nothing to worry about.
    This time of year toms are growing fast and the leaves are produced so quickly they can look a bit dodgy, but after a few days they'll look normal, and I generally find that the lower leaves start go go tatty, so I remove them.
    But as above, a pic would be a big help to see if you have a problem or not

    I wouldn't be worried about that ... well within the range of normal for my tomato plants.

    Don't feed until the first truss of tomatoes has set or you'll have all leaf and few tomatoes.

    Don't water unless the compost is beginning to dry out.

    Dove's advice is good - as always.
    What variety are they?
