I read that grafted plants are more resistant - but they're soooo expensive.

I've given up growing tomatoes because of blight. :-(

I have been growing 'Shirley' F1's as cordons in my glasshouse for about 5 years. They have good virus resistance and I have yet to have problems with blight. Are there any potatoes being grown in the vicinity which might attract the blight and pass it on to the tomatoes or too high humidity levels?
