Anyone know why both of my two cherry tomato plants[nusery bought as seedlings] have died? the wee both doing so well, and all of a sudden, yellowed up and literally collapsed on itself.. the first one was a few weeks ago, and today i just pulled the second one out. No signs of bugs, no unusal fertilizer...i checked the stems, the tomatoes, the leaves... nothing... it just all yellowed up at the same time and collapsed every other plant in there is doing great...everything else is getting the exact same treatmentas these two... both cherry tom plants were next to each other... the only thing I could think of is ant farms in the roots[i saw that in the first one i pulled], or just bad plants, since both were out of the same seedling cell packet thing...

any ideas?

Mark I'm not sure but a few of mine did that this year....I think it may be some can of viral disease in the dirt or something. Next year I think I'll just plant a couple in big tubs and amend my veggie plot with some good stuff and let it rest up.

I feel for you Mark, seems this year is full of problems with diseases and bugs.

It sounds like blight because it went so fast.
