Please help. The leaves on my tumbler tomatoes in a small greenhouse which is well aerated, the door and window are open all the time, are beginning to curl inwards. I cannot find any other thing wrong with them. The leaves are a nice deep green. I am watering regularly but not overly so. Any suggestions would be gratefully considered

despite being well aerated there is probably too much of a fluctuation in temperatures between night and day. Temperatures are running a little too high at times, also if plants are overcrowded as small tomatoes are developing there is a withdrawal of food from the leaf to the developing fruit. a virus can cause similar symptoms(usually single plants not all together) but the curling is usually accompanied by yellow blotches. Will not seriously affect the crop production

Leaves curling inwards on tomatoes is nothing to worry about - quite the opposite, in fact! It's a good sign of their well-being.
