|Lastyear I had a lot of blossim end rot due to posssible lack of calisium. I solved that problem, but It seamed last year Some of my tomatoes were siamese. It looked as if I had conjoned tomatoes. Could that be the result of infrequent and spuratic watering? Can B.E.R. aslo be the result of lack of consistant watering?
Living a tipical overworked life which does not give much time for atention for my garden.

|Although blossom end rot is caused by a lack of calcium, the most common reason for it to actually happen is yes, fluctuations in soil moisture. Using a mulch, amending the soil with ample organic matter and watering deeply but less often (meaning, water heavily about once a week or every five days in hot summer rather than a light daily sprinkling) are good steps to take to prevent it.|
