Does your whole garden have it or just that spot where you cut back a plant? You can always solarize the soil to kill pathogens. That entails covering the area with clear plastic and weighing the edges down with bricks. It takes several weeks with sunny days. Best done in summertime. If it's not too large an area, you can remove and replace the soil. Where you cut back a plant you can treat it with a fungicide to see if that helps. However, the article says it's best to remove infected plants.
