Tomato rainbow

Tomato rainbow

Each branch has a spectrum of tomatoes, read nearest the main stem and green at the extremities.

Already showing signs of fungus on one of the leaves. I have lost all of my crops for many years and the fungus, which, as you point out acurately, seems to stem from the base. Everyone in the Dorset area seems to be having the same problem, except for those plants grown in a greenhouse. What is the solution?

Hi GrowsOnYou18, From what I've heard, I don't think there is a solution. You just pick all the tomatoes, hope they ripen on your window sill and get rid of the plants - I'm burning mine. There's more info from other members (who know a lot more than me) here...
