Good to know they are delicious. What did you feed them for increasing fruiting, if any?

My plants have stopped growing because of the severe cold we have here, night temperature drops to 1-5 C..

I have been usind DAP in small amounts per pot just half a teaspoon of granules scattered per 15 days, when the fruit set i moved on to equal amounts of magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate about a teaspoon of both the things and half a teaspoon of ferrous sulfate dissolved in about 7 liters of water and water my plants every 10 days with it..

Hi All

Yesterday i bought Magnesium Sulphate at rs. 40/kg and ammonium sulphate and ferrous sulphate at rs.50/kg from Jodia Bazar, but there was only one store with the name of Ahmad Chemicals who had them. Otherwise all other chemical stores said that they dont have them.

Thanks to Izhar for confirming the names of later two chemicals.

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.
