One Tomato, Two Tomato, Three Tomato, Four……….2nd April 2011 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
My young tomato plants are now growing so fast that I have had to move them out from under the Gro Light because some of the tallest leaves had got a bit scorched. I will continue to give them bottom heat until it gets a bit warmer, so that they don’t stop in their tracks. Just hope the light levels improve soon. I have had a couple of problems though – firstly the blight resistant variety I sowed, ‘Losetto’, had very poor germination – only one seed in ten. They were planted in the same tray of cells as the other varieties, all of which germinated well. Then today I noticed that there were signs of magnesium deficiency (yellowing between the leaf veins) in some of the plants. I will spray them with Epsom salts diluted in water (half teaspoon to a pint) which should sort that out.
