Blossom End Rot
I have planted many roma plum tomato plants, both in the ground and a couple in containers. All started from seed. I have noticed that the ones ripening all have BER. I know what some of the causes can be, but have a few questions around it.
The BER is affecting both the plants planted in the ground and those in containers. Wouldn't that rule out the soil not having enough calcium as they are planted in two different mediums? Also, the plants planted in the ground are also planted with beefsteak tomatoes and the beefsteaks are not affected by BER. I will say we planted too many plants in too small a space, but since this is not fungal, could that be a cause? Especially since it's only the roma tomatoes affected?
I fertilize once a week, sometimes longer, with Miracle Grow plant food with the hose end feeder. I feel we water pretty regularly as well.
Any idea what gives??
Thanks so much! I love this site. Just wish I had enough knowledge to give back, lol!
