    Not so Blight Tolerant Tomatoes

    9th September 2016In The GardenStephanie Donaldson

    Sadly, some of my blight tolerant outdoor tomatoes have now succumbed.  I have removed the worst affected plants but am waiting to see what happens with the others before cutting them down, but I suspect they will all have to go.  I was probably pushing things by planting them next to my potatoes, but I knew if they survived there they would survive anywhere. Fortunately the greenhouse tomatoes remain hale and hearty and I have had some good pickings from the outdoor plants before they started to blacken and collapse. Next year I will be more circumspect about I plant them in the hope that they will do as well as last year’s batch and remain blight-free throughout. tomatoes tomatoes
