First I have plants with leaves curling these are all in hanging basket. So I think its a watering problem?

Next and this looks bad

Wow just learned how to download a picture from a tablet I think!!

There are 2 plants like this in west facing lean to greenhouse. I have rather a bad memory so can't remember if this has happened before. I am using cheap tomatoes feed. It has only trace elements magnesium. Am I on the right track?

Sorry if there is already post on this but I have looked but can't find one.

HELP!!

From the photo you have posted, it looks like you have watered the plant over the leaves and the sun has scorched the leaves.  Don't worry too much about curling tomato plant leaves - if they are still green the plant will be OK.  You can start taking off some of the lower leaves on your tomato plants to enable the sun to get at the fruit so they ripen better.  Hope this helps.
