All the lovely plum tomato plants growing in the Triangle have had to be uprooted and disposed of. When no-one was looking they developed blight and they looked a sorry sight today. The plants were heavily laden with plum tomatoes but many of those showed the tell-tale brown markings of blight. This photo shows how the stems of the plants have been affected.
Suggestions please for suitable seeds or plants (i.e. edible or herbal) to go in the ground to replace the ground cover which those tomatoes were so good at providing.
