I told my husband about the blossom rot problem you are having and he said to just sprinkle plenty of lime under the plants. This worked well for him a few years ago and the lime is cheap and readily available - lots easier than trying to gather up enough egg shells. Hope this works.

You know, I'm pretty sure there's a bag of lime out in the gardening shed. The problem seems to have gone away .... as if the tomatoes that set out (whatever the term is) during a certain week have it. But since there's some lime out there, I'll sprinkle it when I water today. I think the plums have more problems than they are worth in the long run, I like the flavor of others better. BUT they are the best sauce tomatoes, soo......

I grow in containers in a small green house and reuse the soil, after the summer I set my containers out side for the winter I have this crazy idea that the the soil gets some nutrients from the rain and snow, in the spring I dump out all the containers together and add more fresh soil mix together and repot.Seems to work so far.I also try to remember to give them some plant food when fruits start to show.t

Hi, Try a fungisidle from any plant nursery. All of our roma's did well this year, when planted 3-4 ft. apart.
Time to turn the soil over and prepare for cool season crop here.
