crochetkim's DIED: Tomatillos x 1 Dying

Plant: Tomatillo (Physalis ixocarpa) | Variety: Verde

This planting has been archived (Other)

Last year, I squished up some tomatillos in a planter I wasn’t using. A few of them came up, but it was too close to the end of the season (photo). The seeds survived the winter and came right back up unexpectedly this year.

DIED (October): Death by Hornworms. I was sick and unable to get out there every morning to protect these poor plants. :-(

Tomatillo 'Verde' normally grows to a mature height of 1.20 metres (that's 3.90 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden has full sun light, which is a great match for Tomatillo 'Verde'.

Remember to water often.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (7b) is within the ideal range for Tomatillo 'Verde'. The recommended range is between Zone 5 and 11.

A soil ph of between 6.0 and 7.0 is ideal for Tomatillo 'Verde' as it does best in acidic to neutral soil so test your soil acidity often.
