Hello , I always grow tomatoes in the greenhouse but also outside against the conservatory and some little toms in hanging baskets and some years , depending on the weather they can do really well
I have never ( touch wood ) had blight and use rain water
Blight can be pretty bad in the area I garden, on the allotment even plants in the polytunnel get affected as the spores are carried on the wind, and the doors are open on hot days. Its always worse in wet summers as the damp conditions favour the spread of the spores.
The plants in the polytunnel are watered from a tap fed water butt so has nothing to do with rainwater in my case.
To be honest. Toms, dont always like Mike. If you get my drift. However to pick one from the vine, a dash of salt and. It goes down well. Being on my own. It is not worth growing my own. However in the past. I have grown many. Taking into account. The Tom is most apreciated for it's taste and flavour. In which case. Give me the outdoor grown fruit everytime.
