Tomato Blight
« on: August 13, 2010, 15:26 »
Many (mainly beef) of my tomatoes grown in pots have succumbed to blight.  I have stripped the fruit from them, burnt the plants, but what should I do with the compost in which they were growing?

As long as there is no living plant material in it, blight cannot survive.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
