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 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
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!
