Tomotes Rotting at top end

Gwen O\’Kelly asked 13 years ago

I have tomatoes in the Greenhouse and some are rotting where they are attached to the plant. Also they are not ripening. I know weather is a problem not a lot of sun. The first tomatoes appeared end of May and are still not red.

After dull weather, tomatoes sometimes rot at the stem where they are held. This is caused by grey mould which is favoured by dampness.

Try to ventialte the greenhouse and reduce watering and dampening of surfaces in dull weather.
