Tomato Plants at Terra Nurseries--Problems?
Today I was at Terra Nurseries (Burlington), where I picked up 5 large heirloom tomato plants--2 Black Cherry, 2 Purple Cherokee, and one Black Prince. As I was dropping them into my garden boxes, I noticed that the Black Cherry plants had somewhat curled leaves, with faintly dark edges. Uh oh. I wish I had caught this before I planted them.
Last year I bought a similar set of tomato plants at Terra. Within a few weeks, I noticed the Black Cherry had signs of a bacterial issue--probably Bacterial Wilt. In the subsequent weeks this seemed to spread to the rest of 20 or so tomato plants in my garden. The yield was very low and most plants shriveled before summer's end.
I will contact Terra on Monday, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had any issues with disease on Terra Nurseries tomato plants, and if so, how you addressed them.
Thanks in advance for any info.
