Among the Barn Nursery's most frequently asked concerns is "Why are my tomatoes decomposing on the bottom?" It's a discouraging issue that is quickly solved with the best products. Blossom End Rot is the response. Blossom End Rot typically appears when the tomatoes have to do with 1/2 grown to maturity and looks something like a "watery blob" or "water soaked" sore on the bottom of the fruit. As the problem establishes the area becomes dark brown and sunken using up half the size of the tomato (). A lack of calcium triggers the cells to break down, causing the decomposing of the fruit (cordless leaf blower).
The greatest cause of Blossom End Rot is inconsistent watering. Calcium requires a constant circulation to the fruit. When plants dry, the flow of calcium stops, the fruit continues to grow, but without the calcium. It is kindof like clogged up arteries; the dryness avoids calcium from reaching the tomatoes. How do you prevent this? Examine for water daily. Mulch it (ryobi lawn mower). Ideally you would aim for a regularly damp garden. Proper Soil Preparation is very important here. In our location, we do have a good amount of calcium present in our soil. Tomato plants suck up calcium so it is very important to occasionally renew the calcium in your garden soil.
