I have flower end rot on my plum tomatoes, can you tell me what the cause is and how can it be prevented in the future



mainly because your watering is irregular. they need regular, and even watering, allowing for weather variations. i try to keep my toms ground in the g/house damp, and so far i have had no problems. diadon

Hi Alfamale & welcome to GoY. As Diadon says blossom end rot is caused by irregular watering. In general tomatoes need a lot more water than we think they do!
