Something isn’t quite right

Poor performing grow bags, Westland on the left, better performing Tomorite on the right

My tomatoes are a bit late anyway, none have yet ripened. I planted the same tomatoes grown from seed, one group in Westland grow bags on the left,  in Tomorite grow bags on the right. Both sides have Costoluto Fiorentino and Black Cherry tomatoes (the Westland side also has a Red Pear. The Westland side was planted about a week before the Tomorite and have never been ‘right’. Leaf curl, poor growth, poor flowering and set.The Tomorite are much lusher and taller with better flowering and set. Some kind of contamination in the Westland compost?

I have bought many different general composts this year and have found them very variable,  it’s a pity I haven’t taken notes, as some have been downright appalling with plants making little or no root growth at all in some.
