Talkback: Tomato blight

Posted: 13/08/2012 at 17:05

Hi I live in Berkshire and have lost most of my tomatoes to the dreaded blight.  Usually I grow seeds from tomatoes ive bought, but this year I bought all new named varieties so thought they would be stronger (just a thought).  Anyway I am so upset as the only plants I have left are two which I left in the greenhouse and one in a hanging basket!

Can anyone tell me if it is safe to use the soil in the tubs that my plants were in and also are there any varieties which are resistant to blight?

Thank you

Thankyou for your reply.

I have thrown most of the plants away, but will take a photo if it happens any more.

I will also try spraying next year, but be very careful with the spray.  As most of my tomatoes are in containers, it wont get onto the soil.

Just one thing - how do I put a photo on here???

I also think I have had blight on several varieties of tomatoes already.  Quite upset about it as I bought all new seeds this year, whereas I usually save seeds from tasty tomatoes and grow them.

Mine were all in the open, some in tubs others in a small raised bed.  Maybe I had them too close together?  I have thrown them away and just hope the rest of the plants dont get it.

What spray is it you use to help fight blight? 

I was so looking forward to lots of home grown tomatoes!

I have just read on another site that annual Honesty has the flat round seed heads but the perennial Honesty has long eklongated seed heads.  Ah ha!!!!  I am off to see which is which as I know I have both!

Now my Honesty & Aquiliegias have almost finished flowering, do I pull them up or just cut them down at the base?

I never know if they will flower again so am not sure if I should leave them or pull them up.  I will keep some seed to make sure I get some more plants but the plants are quite big and also 'floppy', so can anyone tell me what I should do please?

Thank you

weeping cherry tree

I have a smallish weeping cherry tree and have noticed there is a yellow jelly type substance coming out of the branches and a lot of it has fallen on the grass below the tree.

Can anyone tell me what this is please and whatmI should do?

Hi,

I used to use the 'garden clinic' on the old - now closed - BBC site and often found answers to questions I had about my garden.  Also it was interesting just reading the posts.  Could you tell me what would be the nearest thing to it on this site as I have yet to find my way around properley.

Thank you
