End rot

Post  ralitaco on 5/26/2010, 9:38 pm

Does anyone have any solutions for endrot?
I have lost a couple of tomatoes and all of my zucchini.
My research indicates a calcium deficiency.
any thoughts for an SFG solution?

Thanks,
Jim

Hope it's not too late for your remaining crop... Someone here suggested dissolving calcium supplement tablets and watering with that solution. Antacid tablets are calcium, too.

I figured I'd try to head off that problem, and when I planted my tomatoes, I dropped a 'TUMS' into the bottom of the hole. It'll probably take at least a little while to dissolve, so I am hoping for a continuing source for them over the next couple of weeks at least.

thanks Deb.
I will get some calium concentrate.

Just so you know, i did do a search for "rot" but came up with 0 results.
I must be doing something wrong.

maybe powdered milk, you could get it @any grocery store, mix it with your water before watering them. dont know if this would work but seems to me like it would.
