What's happened to my tomato?

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 10:37

I wrote this yonks ago, just in case anyone may wish to give it a glance.

"Blossom end rot occurs when there are insufficient calcium levels in developing fruit. This is most common when the first trusses are forming and calcium demand is high.

As water transports calcium around the tomato plant the condition is usually linked to inadequate or irregular watering.

Tomatoes need the equivalent of 2-4cms rainfall every week, though the amount of water given is less important than maintaining consistent water levels. Watering daily, at least, will be necessary in hot conditions.

As little as half-an-hour of water deficiency can cause the condition to develop. Pick off and compost any fruits that have been affected.

Mulching around tomato plants with grass clippings, straw or hay will prevent plants drying out."

I love bats, we sit in the conservatory at night to watch the bats swooping above us. I hope i can make a good one because I will be so chuffed with myself, and hopefully it may encourage more bats in my garden. Thankyou for the tips.

 

Me too....why I married one!

I have to say that I do feel sorry for the Brazilians....this humiliation must be very hard to come to terms with. However, this sympathy doesn't extend to David Luiz who I have never liked, very overrated and lucky not to be red-carded in most games I've seen him play.

I  think Jose Mourinho was very wise to sell him to Paris Saint- Germain.

Love the lilac coloured ones, that is one of my favourite colours, in fact all shades of purple are my favourite colour.....apart from yellow 

 

It's 'Dot Com', OL....listed as 'blue ripple'.

Btw, you'll be pleased to know that the colour yellow has so far eluded sweet breeders.
