I'll not be two minutes Laughing

I've never had blight yet (taps head), and don't intend to start now.

Had more problems with slugs and caterpillars eating them.

I got blight on my first year. (2 years ago) many more did too. it was blamed on the wet summer we had. How it got in the greenhouse I don't know but I lost the whole crop, So I'll see how this year goes and maybe try aspirin  if blight returns this year

Tom, this is a helpful site I find, you get emails from them telling you when you have a 'Smith period', which is the time blight is most likely to be knocking about. All you do is put your first part of your postcode in, and it tells you whether there's been a near miss, Smith Period, etc.
