SOURCE: brown bugs on tomatoe plant--what can i do?

IF you don't want to use a commercial insecticide, you can drown them with mildly soapy water that you can spray on the plants. You can also use a cedar based oil spray like they offer on cedarcide dot com.

How do I recognise tomato blight ?? do the leaves go brown and how can I treat it


prevention is better than cure. It is a fungal attack. Pictures and info in the link.

How do you prevent early blight?
  • Rotate crops. Early blight remains active for a year. Spores can be dormant in the soil for several years.
  • Plant disease-resistant hybrids to strengthen your plant's chances of being blight-free.
  • Plant tomatoes in a raised bed to improve drainage and prevent diseases from spreading.
  • Give tomato plants extra space (more than 24 inches) to let air to move among leaves and keep them dry.
  • Water the soil - not the plants - to prevent splashing. Avoid overhead watering.
  • Mulch with black plastic or landscape fabric to prevent fungus from spreading up onto leaves.
  • Stake tomato plants for better circulation.
  • Remove and destroy affected plants at the end of the season.

When tomato plants put on green tomatoes. yellow leaves form at bottom with black spot inside. Usually killing plant. can you help?


Might be Tomato Mosaic. Plant should be destroyed as it can spread to other plants. Tobacco on hands can start it off strangely enough. Or could be too much watering at one go, moderate watering about twice a week in dry hot weather, and a little shade while the leaves are still tender. Feed often, but not too strong.

Tomato plants have had no flowers.Mainly Grosse Lisse. Grown in plant bed with 8 hours sun per day. Fertilised dug in with pot ash before planting.Just under a metre tall with good green foliage


Interesting. I have three tomato plants this year which bore no fruit. One was a $20 grafted tomato and was huge, but no flowers.

A horticulturalist told me he though I had a virus. I will be sterilizing the soil with Jeyes Fluid twice, now and about a month before planting.

Why home grown tomotos might turn black on the bottom?


Here you go. I found this to help you out.



Tomato plants tend to develop blossom-end rot when they receive uneven amounts of moisture. For example, plants that go from being too dry to too wet, then back, are susceptible to the disease. To prevent this, water your tomatoes regularly. Removing affected fruit can prevent blossom-end rot from spreading to new tomatoes. Tomato plants need 1 inch of water per week, on average.

Why do the leaves on tomato plants near the ground turn yellow?


The main cause is lack of nutrients because the top leaves are blocking the sunlight. This is not something to worry about. A tomato plant cannot support all of the leaves and have great fruit production too. You should selectively prune some of the leaves on mature plants to promote large tomatoes.

I have 4 tomato plants that are full of large green tomatoes but they will not turn red. What can I do to get them to ripen?


Grant, an interesting problem. Not knowing the environment, I searched for methods to force-ripen tomatoes; this site looks promising:

http://homeguides.sfgate.com/force-tomatoes-ripen-64525.html

If it's just too cold, the tomatoes won't ripen on their own. The above site advocates picking the tomatoes and bringing them inside to ripen, among several other potential solutions.

There are also recipies you can try with green tomatoes (other than frying). After the first frost of the season, I made a tomato chutney that was excellent following this instructable:

My tomatoes are splitting and have rings on skin


Not a router related question, but I grow tomatoes as well. It happens when the tomato develops from the flower on the plant. It is a natural process which factory grown (and tasteless) tomatoes generally do not feature. As the tomato expands, due to plentiful water, the skin might not grow as fast since it needs an adequate amount of sunlight to both help the tomato's skin to develop and to eventually turn red. it is very common but sometimes if the tomatoes are left on the plant too long, those rings tend to split open, even if you think the tomato is still too small to be harvested. once tomatoes are nice and red, pick them rather than waiting for them to get bigger, because they will bust at their seams. You can even pick partially red tomatoes and let them sit on the window sill in the sun to have them compturn red.....now about the router issue.....

Spots on tomatoes


If the spots are mostly at the bottom of the tomato, more like one blotch, it is from not having enough lime in your soil. It is called bottom rot.Putting lime in the soil is called sweetening the soil with lime.This is what you need to do for bottom rot. If it is in other places and more than one spot, it could be from insects crawling on and defecating on the tomatoes or maybe a type of fungus or mold. Hope you only need garden lime. It will save your tomatoes from bottom rot since it is early in the year.
