I have two tomato plants in a self watering pot, they have grown well, flowering but have yellow leaves

I have checked for pests and nothing, the pot is moist not wet, i have fertilised with uplift twice in the past month and dusted only last week, i was thinking of moving to two seperate pots is this a good idea now? or should i try using some yates thrive fruit food?

Answer: Hi Damian,
I would not split the tomatoes into two pots as the roots may be damaged when separating the plants. If the leaves are yellow then additional nitrogen may be required.

Applying Thrive Flower and Fruit will provide the nitrogen as well as potassium to help promote flowering and fruit production.

Do not over water the plants as this can increase the incidence of leaf diseases.
If the younger leaves are yellow but the veins are green this indicates an iron deficiency and this can be corrected using Chelated Iron.

If you could send a photograph this can also help us identify the problem.
