Hi Free tomatillos from seed abt 7 years ago...this year they've grown to about 0.5m but all the leaves at the top of the main stems have started to shrivel and growth seems to have stopped. Any suggestions? I've planted fresh seed but it's December 26 so it may be a bit late.

Shriveling could be from hot sun, dry soil or fungi/disease. Suggested time to plant Sept-Oct.
