HOW TO AVOID BLIGHT MARE?
I have just finished doing my Christmas potato reveal. Out of the 9 containers in my smaller polytunnel, we only got a large handful of usable potatoes. On closer inspection of the parent tubers, many had disintegrated into slimy sludge, gone rotton, or just gone. ( Attack of the 60 ft slugs) - a slight exaggeration, but what blight did'nt ransack, the slugs took the remainder of.
My Polytunnels have adequate veneration, ie, the doors stay open unless hurricanes visit! Despite this, they are always dripping moisture. Which I know is a haven for blight visitation.
Everything in the other polytunnel is ticking away nicely, & it too drips moisture. Not having the room on the patio or elsewhere for raised beds to grow potatoes outside, undercover in large containers is my only option. I go through legions of salt to combat the slugs, but I fear moisture is my enemy more so, when it comes to the perpetrators of my failings.
PLEASE DOES ANYBODY HAVE A SUGGESTION TO GET RID OF THE MOISTURE, SO I CAN GROW SOMETHING OTHER THAN SALAD CROPS & WATERCRESS ! Thanks.
