Thanks, that makes sense Roland, because Ink Spot seems to set in when the
plants are waterd during warm periods at the end of growth. If they have
got too dry and gone dormant in hot spring weather, wetting them brings Ink
spot and other rots.
I have found a more moisture retentive compost seems to prevent the
premature dormancy and give a longer growing season.
