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.

We planted new grape plants a few months ago. Now have little grapes forming along the vines . Just need to know can I cut off the long vine/cane just after the last bunch.


Unfortnately, those grapes need to be pruned off the plant for two years to make the roots and the plant stronger.

  • In the first couple of years, the vine should not be allowed to produce fruit. It needs to strengthen its root system before it can support the extra weight of fruit.
  • Pruning is important. Not only would vines run rampant without control, but canes will only produce fruit once. Prune annually when vines are dormant, in March or April. This is before the buds start to swell, but when winter damage is apparent.
  • Don't be afraid to remove at least 90 percent of the previous season's growth. This will ensure a higher quality product.
  • Remember, the more you prune, the more grapes you will have.
  • In the first year, cut back all buds except for 2 or 3. Then, select a couple of strong canes and cut back the rest. Make sure the remaining canes are fastened to the support.
  • In the second year, prune back all canes. Leave a couple of buds on each of the arms. Remove flower clusters as they form.
  • Do not fertilize in the first year unless you have problem soil. Fertilize lightly in the second year of growth.

    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.

    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.

    My cherry tomatoes are up.. do I need to thin them to one plant per pod?


    If they are the indeterminant sort, one plant is just the thing. If they are determinant, then you may have room for additional plants ,as they will not keep adding to their mass. Happy gardening:)

    My topsy turvy tomatoes have somthing wrong with them one has a hole in it about 1/4 inch around and another has 4 small holes in the bottom of it, also this may be normal but the bottom of the plant...


    Hi,
    The "warts" are perfectly normal. The holes could be normal or it could be bugs or a worm. The bugs or the worm are often the very same green color as the leaves and are also undetectable. Check the undersizes of the leafs as that is often where they like to hide.

    My cherry tomato plants are 8" high and 5 weeks old. I just noticed that the very bottoms of the main stems are a little smaller (in diameter) than the rest of the stem and are slightly brown! Could it be...


    Hi,

    Sounds like it could be Nitrogen defficiency ..
    "Nitrogen deficiency:Very slow growth of plants, followed by progressive pale green color moving from tip and young leaves back to more mature leaves. Leaves are small, thin, perhaps with purple veins. Stems eventually brown and dry off. Flower buds yellow and drop. Apply N immediately"All you ever wanted to know about tomatoes but were too afraid to ask: http://home.earthlink.net/~shelly.johnson/tomato.html
