Barry's tomatoes, (next but one plot)...



My tomatoes, (rooted side shoots from my greenhouse "Shirley")..



Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

The drawback with dithane is that crops must not be harvested for 7 days after application. This protects the plants if there are only green tomatoes present but prevents a follow up spray if there are any showing signs of ripening.

Simply remove any that are showing signs of ripening prior to spraying & let them fully ripen off the plant, this should be sufficient to give you that period.

I sprayed with bordeaux diluted with water just as blight was mentioned - a funny blue solution! But did the trick too. I planted my Christmas potatoes just over a week ago, one variety has now produced leaves which I have also sprayed in the hope that that too will stop any blight.
