    Hi every one! We live in Minnesota and two days ago, there was a storm with lots of rain. My tomato plants did not recover from that storm, it seems as if their roots have been damaged. I attach the photo, any one with suggestions are more than welcome! 20180715_184611.jpg 20180715_184623.jpg

    Do you have holes in the container so that the water can drain out?

    What kind of soil is in your planter???

    BTW 2 plants in that size container may be too many. Tomatoes have large root systems because the are heavy feeders... They would do better in the ground.

    Is that one of the Earthbox style planters where you water the planter from the bottom and the potting medium wicks the water to the root zone?
