I spent this morning at home potting up the rest of my tomatoes into 6 inch pots.
I’ve had to move various plant pots around, and put many of them out in the front garden just to make room for my tomatoes.
But I have finally got all of my tomato plants into their final pots. I don’t know how many I have, but it’s a lot!!
Hopefully that’ll mean loads of wonderful tomatoes over the summer months.
Now I’ve just got to tidy the garden table as I’ve made a bit of a mess on it. I’ll do that tomorrow.
All those tomatoes, how do you avoid blight?
Water from the bottom helps reduce blight. The ones in the greenhouse seem to be ok, but I keep a very close eye on the ones outside. I don’t grow them down the allotment anymore because of blight. Have some tomato medicine standing by just incase.
You are certainly going to have a lot of tomatoes.
Still, transferring my plants but only got a few this year after losing most of my crop to botrytis. Not a problem if the weather is dry but horrid if it’s damp and the plants are too close.
Water from the bottom, usually helps, but the rain does understand that concept.
I mean losing last year’s crop.
Blight can also devastate tomatoes, which is why I only now grow them in my back garden. On the allotment it spreads like wild fire.
I’ve not had a problem with blight fortunately (only grown them in my back garden). At least you have found a way of keeping your tomatoes sound 🙂
Hi Claire. Sometimes it is best not to count how many plants you have…. it always comes as a bit of a shock when you do!
Cheers Sarah : o )
Yes it does come as quite a shock. I had to buy some more 4 foot canes for my tomato, I think I bought about 60 and used most of them!!
