Q.

Tomato Blight

Zone London Sw16 1NG | Mindy added on October 24, 2016 | Answered

I planted my first tomato plants this year. At the end of the season, I blended all the green tomatoes infected with what I understand is tomato blight and dumped the liquid mess into my hot compost bin. Do I have to burn my compost heap now?
