I have recently planted a few tomato plants in pots but looks like something is eating their leaves they are drying. I would like to know how to stop this, which chemical I need to buy and to spray it to stop.

1 Answer 1


Leaf miner, very common as the leaves get older and have to be removed from the bottom upwards the problem will solve itself- plants are annual anyway so shouldn't continue next year if you throw out your compost every year and start again new and sterilised soil for next year.
