Don't mention tomato blight!!!!!!
Blame myself really, as I'd been keeping a close eye on outdoor tomatoes to try and judge when I should spray with a preventive copper fungicide. Suddenly spotted in this week, and it has already taken hold.
Have ripped out any plants showing symptoms of blight and sprayed everything, including Losetto that should be blight tolerant. Not leaving anything to chance as I really love my tomatoes!
Hopefully some of the large Italian plum tomatoes will have survived ... fingers crossed!
All this rain, high humidity and high temperatures is just what blight needs to spread on potatoes and tomatoes, so beware! Spray today!
