Reusing Blighted Tomato Soil

honkytonkgalAugust 17, 2006


I just had a tomato plant die from late blight. It was in one of the Garden Supply Company's self-watering containers, and I am wondering if it would be ok to use the same soil to grow a few more things before the end of this growing season. Thanks!

The pathogen that causes late blight only affects a few plants. Potatoes are very prone to it and peppers and eggplants may be damaged. The soil will probably be fine for most other things. If you're sure it was late blight, I'd say give it a try.
