Blight Resistant Tomatoes come up Trumps5th September 2015 • In The Garden • Stephanie Donaldson
I’ve been testing some blight resistant tomato varieties sent to me by www.organicplants.co.uk and for the first time in years I have outdoor varieties that have not succumbed before they have ripened. I could never resist trying a few plants outdoors just in case we had a suitably hot and dry summer that would keep the dreaded blight at bay, but every year they collapsed just as the fruit was on the point of ripening, so this is really good news. They seem perfectly happy whatever the weather throws at them, growing well in the very dry conditions and withstanding gales and torrential rain remarkably well. And they are cropping well too. This really is very good news.
