How to treat blossom end rot in my tomatoes

Submitted: 05:24PM, 07 Feb 2016
Answer: Tomatoes are prone to blossom end rot, which causes a sunken, decaying area on the end of the fruit. Although it is a disease, it’s caused by lack of access to regular water and calcium.

Two ways to help prevent tomato blossom end rot are to keep soil consistently moist during the growing season and apply some Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite to the soil. It is a concentrated source of calcium which can help reduce the chances of blossom end rot. Don’t be put off by the product name – it’s fine for tomatoes!
