More Problems with Tomato Blight Virus
After a very rainy spring and very wet beginning of Sept. I lost all but one
of my tomato plants. I'm getting different answers to my question regarding next
year's garden. Do I have to wait three years to plant tomatoes in the same spot?
What if I use the spray we successfully used to save the plants in the Spring
on the ground? Do you think planting under the eves of the house will help ?
Thank you! Linda
Excess rain can contribute to Tomato Blight
It seems that everyone has their own answers about tomatoe blight.
I've heard so many, and I really don't have the answers. Two years ago was
the first experience I had with blight. I asked around then, and was led to
believe that skipping a year or two would solve the problem. I tried again
this year, planting the tomatoes 100 feet away, in new soil. The plants were
thriving, and it hadnt rained for three weeks, But blight struck anyway.Three
days and the plants and fruit were gone.....Next year, and from now on, I'll
let someone else grow 'em. If you found a spray that works, please let me
know what it is, I'll pass it on. I would imagine that you will have to use
it for several years though. As far as planting them under the eaves of your
house goes,I think it would help fight a new infection, but apparently the
virus stays in the soil for some time, so you may still have the problem,,,wet
