Hi, trying my hand at growing the above, they've come on well and I have fruits forming but leaves on both plants seem very soft and wilty, been giving them a feed for fruit,flowers and veg but wondering if maybe tomatoe food would be better, I water regurlarly but not sure if giving sufficient, I don't have greenhouse so I put them outside when it's sunny and warm and keep them inside on windowsill when it's not, would be grateful for any advice please.

it is quite normal for leaves of plants to wilt in the heat. if fruits have formed you must be doing things right. The tomato feed would be much better, higher in Potassium. Check for greenflies every day especially for those with wings.
