 a.  can I leave courgette plants which are doing very well, peppers,chilly peppers, aubergines and strawberry plants in situ or are they susceptible to blight?

Yes, these crops are not affected by potato blight.


b. what will I spray ground  with now ?

No need to spray with anything. The potato or tomato plants themselves are sprayed. 

c. how long should I leave after spraying before planting  again ?

No need to wait. 


d. could you recommend a book on tunnel gardening for complete beginners please.

If you go to the Know-how: How to grow: Greenhouse growing section on this site, you will find the basic information.
