I'm just wondering what might be up with my hanging basket tomatoes. A good few of the leaves are turning a purplish colour. Is this from dampness or over watering or anything?

The tomatoes that are coming off it are gorgeous but just wondering if i should just pick off the bad leaves and let it go on...?

Hi, im no expert but as it happens was only looking at tomato plants problems the other day and the purple color leaves it was stated as purple tints and older leaves yellowing was a sign of 'Nitrogen deficiency'

Growth dwarfed and thin; leaflets droop, curl backward and develop strong, dull purple tints. could be 'phosphorus deficiency'

But wait for confirmation before you do anything....
