: Tomato leaves have mildew; turn yellow and die--plants almost nude of leaves. New blossoms die also. I have a dozen beautiful Heirloom tomato plants that produced nice big tomatos from the first blossom set(2nd year from seeds I saved. What causes this problem and what can I do about it.

Hi Maggie,

My first question would be "are you growing your tomatoes in the same spot every year?" That would help to keep the cycle of mildew and blossom end rot going. Here's a site that should be helpful. Click on FAQ's as well.

Good luck for next year,
