hi all i am having a little problem in green house. I have loads of tomatoes growing in hanging baskets and pots and there seems to be loads of black patches on them. What would cause this? It also seems to be on the chillies and green peppers? Any idea what it might be. ?

I think chilli's typically go black before they turn red.. Well mine do anyways Smile Not sure about the tomatoes though.

the black patches show the presence of aphids or greenfly usually on the upper part part of the plant. This is a mould that grows on the honeydew secreted by the aphids
