    Is there any advantage in leaving and digging in tomato roots like with beans?
    Advice from the cognoscenti please :rose:

    Food for the worms, Anne :-) I wouldn’t dig them in – I’d just leave them but that’s just me ;-)

    I never compost pots or toms,its only adding to the possibility of having blight the following year,They are bagged and go out as green waste.

    Ah good :good: Thanks for that Allan. Have just cut them off, and left them in a heap. Wondered about the odd one or two that seemed a tad manky at the end, tho’ on the whole they look pretty sound. Will now bag for the green waste :good: :rose:
