Have I got the dreaded blight? Had a few days of heavy sea fog here last week and allied to the blight warning I may have been hit, due to working in Dublin I just couldn't spray them so I had to take a chance. Hopefully they are just gone over and starting to wilt. May dig them up now anyway. Oddly enough it has affected 70% of the Roosters, say 10% of the Golden Wonders and none of the Kerrs Pinks.
