Tomato Blossom End Rot Everyone wants nice healthy tomatoes like the ones shown here, but Blossom End Rot, or "BER" is a common tomato problem, especially in hot climates. BER has two primary sources; soil that has a calcium deficiency and/or soil that is inconsistently watered. So, if the bottom side of your tomatoes start to show signs of BER, the first thing to do is to make sure the soil is not drying out before the next time you water. You may need to water a couple times a day - once in the morning and once in the late afternoon, but don't over water either. Try to maintain an even soil moisture content.

The second thing you can do is add Garden Lime to your soil, to ensure that the soil has sufficient calcium. If your soil is low in calcium (as determined by a soil test), add Garden Lime several times per year. More plant issues..
