Welcome to my blog

I was born in Guernsey (but now live in Brittany) and our main industry was growing tomatoes although that industry has now virtually disappeared. Growing tomatoes to a Guernseyman is like wine to a Frenchman, it's in our blood! I do not profess to be an expert, but I have picked up a few tips and techniques which work for me.

Leaf Scorch on Tomato Plants

I received an email this week from a follower of my blog with the photos below attached, which is far easier for me to recognise problems with tomato plants.

This one was fairly easy as it looks very much like leaf scorch and is caused by the plant drying out too much in hot weather, or sometimes by too strong a fertiliser. Just keep the soil moist and try to spray the plants with water a few times a day if is really hot or even put a bit of shade over them. They should recover OK.

I have a full page about it here;
