Bloosom end rot on some tomatoes

Posted: 07/07/2015 at 19:28

I've always found Italophile's posts on tomatoes really helpful - in this thread from last year he explains the causes of BER http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/problem-solving/tomatoe-problem/86841.html

Hope that's helpful

That's a brillant idea Verdun, and then the air in the garden will fill with their perfume too - it does carry on the evening air, like that of honeysuckle and Sweet Rocket

The poor thing is suffering from drought and suffocation.  As well as lots of water, gallons and gallons of it each week, roots need oxygen in the soil too   It needs more bare soil around it - can you remove some of the paving?

If you want to keep them elegant and beautiful you don't want to cut the branches short, but in a few years' time when they're established plants, you can take one third of the stems out at the base each year after flowering, so that in three years all the stems have been replaced.  That will rejuvenate the whole plant and keep it flowering each year.

HELLO FORKERS!

Oh Verdun - that's awful - early intervention is soooooooooooo important for positive outcomes from strokes - it's been proved time and time again.  Thank goodness he has you to jump up and down and shout on his behalf!!! ((hugs))

We've had on and off heavy-ish showers all afternoon and now we have really blustery gusts of wind. 

The houseplants (succulents and cacti) are all outside in a sheltered spot where they will be washed free from household dust etc over the next couple of days.
