Tomatoe problem

Posted: 12/07/2013 at 21:21

Is this on the actual tomato ? Blossom end rot, if it is. Irregular watering and letting the soil dry out causes a loss of calcium which the plant needs. Never been able to save a plant once this happens. But, if you want to try - regular watering, feeding and moist compost is key.

What are these small green flies

Possibly a common green capsid bug.

Buy or make a raised pond

I'd do the same thing with a hose....but, I don't have that kind of luxury. Feel blessed people.

A white mist ?? Might be white powdery mildew.

Cucumbers are prone to getting this on their leaves at this time of year. You need better circulation and increased humidity inside the greenhouse using water and 2 sources of air-vents. If this has just appeared, spray leaves with diluted milk and water for a couple days. 

I usually suffer from WPM but this year, I increased C & H and up till now...everythings perfect.

Curled leaves on tomatoes is ok, usually means at this time of year - too hot followed by cold. But do check for aphids, just to be sure.

You could try, never known it to really work though. Bug spray works, so does squashing them with your fingers but this is messy. 

Wot no carrots?

Are you sure you've been sold industrial weed membrane ? where'd you buy it from and is it about 5mm thick.

Pull some of the gravel back and check to see if they have actually grown through.
