PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Last year I shoveled up a 2 by 10 foot raised bed and planted about 8 tomatoes and lots of different herbs. By about June I started to see some of them wilting and thought it was because of the extremely hot and dry weather. No matter how much water...they wilted. Figured that it was some type of bacterial wilt. This year I built a fairly large cedar raised bed and filled it with equal parts top soil and leaf gro. Everything was growing beautifully until today....and here we go again! One with some serious wilt while all the others look fine. I pulled out the affected tomato plant and am crossing my fingers that the others will stay healthy. My compost tea is almost done brewing and maybe that will help build the good fungi and bacteria!
