2nd Post Today! Is This Blight?

Is this Blight then??



I really hope its not, I don't remember it being here last time I looked!!! If it is I am going to lose at least 9 tomato plants, I shall have to dig up all the potatoes!

Hi libby,
I wouldn't recognise blight but I would visit www.topveg.com and ask them about blight in tomatoes as they will tell you what it looks like. I always visit TopVeg for my veg gardening advice - they are so helpful.
Hope that helps and hope it isn't blight.

Could well be, with all the damp, mild weather. I know it is a nightmare year for tomatoes, my friend in Cornwell has blight - we are ok so far touchwood, but we should be eating the darned things by now, not still watching the flowers!

Its a bit difficult to tell from the photo - it could be a lack of magnesium - due to all the rains.

You could try epsom salts

I don't know but could it be from lots of rain?

Libby if you link to
http://vegetablemdonline.ppath.cornell.edu/cropindex.htm
you'll get the Disease Fact Sheets page and it is listed by crop. Click on tomato and you'll get a lot of info about tomato diseases and there are some clear pics of the problems too. Hope this helps!
