tomatoe plants

Hi my name is Kay, my mum is growing tomatoe plant which have started to flower and produce tomatoe but i have recently found small bumps on the plants stem near the base i was wondering if this was normal?

Also the leaves near these bumps have started to change colour and are becoming yellow. Are these two seperate things?

And how can i treat them?

Re: tomatoe plants

Hi Kay,

The bumps are perfectly normal, they are in fact an attempt by the plant to produce more roots. If you earted up around the bumps, the plant would root into it.

Leaves at the base of tomato plants frequently turn yellow. As long as there is some green growth, don't worry. Pull off the yellow leaves to avoid atrracting diseases.
