Talkback: Potato blight



  • My bay tree has large brown patches on the leaves, what is the problem? Can it be treated?
  • some thing is eating the leaves on my potato plants could someone tell me what and will we be able to eat thhe potatoes.
  • If you were to eat a slightly blight infected potato, it would not harm you but believe me....I don't think you ever would, they generally develop a very smelly secondary rot! If you do get a bit of contaminated tubert in your cooked potato, the taste is horrible, I've done it!
  • My lovely ornamental pots with specimen plants are suffering from severe ant attack. What does any one recommend we should use to treat this problem successfully and not harm the plants?
  • I am a first time veg grower and have some potatoes growing in bags. Ant appears to be eating through the base of shoots coming of the main stems causing them to break off. They then congregate around the break? Is this a major problem if so how do I deal with it?
  • I would like to move my Magnolia tree it's about 6ft tall and 4ft wide. I planted it some years ago before I re did the kitchen now the view from the window at the kitchen sink is almost blocked by the tree. I have a lovely empty space at the bottom of the garden where it would look wonderful.

    Any help would be great.
  • Does potato blight affect tomatoes? Because of the extremely wet weather our potatoes were affected and I think it has spread to my tomatoes.
