Tomato Root Rot

Tomato roots showing signs of rot

Identifying FeaturesEdit

Poor drainage can lead to root disease. Below ground the roots become dark brown and corky, above ground the plants tend to wilt in hot weather.


Roots cannot be cured once they have taken hold. Mulch around the stems with moist peat to promote the formation of new roots.


Next year grow plants in bags, fresh compost or sterilised soil.
