I had planted two beef steak tomato plants in pots in dec and now there leaves are turning yellow and curling inward what should I do? I transplanted them into the bigger pots but that does not seems to work. In addition to your knowledge both of them have four to five tomatos which are succesfully growing. suggest me a solution.

Dear Mstansir Billah
For my suggestion, first of all Check your Soil PH Level after that check PH level of water too.

Mustansir sb, there are plenty of tips on this topic, by looking at the pics it seems they are facing nutrient deficiency primarily magnesium and Iron, make a solution of 1 teaspoon each Magnesium sulfate and Ferrous sulfate in 5-8 liters of water and water your plants every week, also start feeding your tomatoes with potassium as they are in fruit.

Is it safe to prune your tomato plant in this season?
I pruned my tomato plant to make it single stemmed and now its dying instead of producing new leaves.

It is of no use now, pruning will not increase the plant vigor and will die due to extreme weather, discard the plant and sow a new crop in August for best results.

Will the tomato plants in container bed perform better than the plants in separate container?

They might...provided they are given adequate root space, tomatoes are very fussy eaters and need lots of nutrients and room to grow good.
