tomato problems

Posted: 30/09/2013 at 14:52

Thnx for this. Maybe I had them too close together. I watered them evering evening - about two pints per plant. I did this because I understood if they flopped that would cause blossom end rot.

As a precaution I intend to spray the whole greenhouse with Jeyes fluid in the early spring

I grerw them from seed starting off about the beginning of April. Transferred to 3 inch pots early May then into the greenhouse in bottomless pots sitting on growbags.

I sprayed once when they were about 2 ft high with an fungicide. The early fruit grew flattened with the black patch on the blossom end.

Hope this helps

Can anyone give me some advise on tomato fungus attack. My moneymakers have had a lousy year. First they succumbed to blossom end rot even though they were watered regularly and evenly. Then the fruit that survived started dropping off because there was mould/fungus on the stalk end of the tomato.

Is there a more disease resistant strain with the same cropping abundance as moneymaker or what should I do to deter the diseases next year.

I have several garlic plants in large pots which look really healthy following the harsh winter. What is the best feed come Spring?

can anyone help? I have several clematis of varying types in my garden. Some are on a north facing fence others on east and west facing fences. The problem is that they all sprout healthily in the spring but some (mainly on the north facing fence) start withering at a height of about 2/3 feet and the leaves go brown. However they still grow on and produce healthy leaves and flowers at about 4/5 feet high. Is there any way to avoid this as I'd like the plants to look healthy from ground level
