Tomato Blight


Anonymous added on August 10, 2015 | Answered

I have cleared my patch of tomatoes that suffered with blight. I have dug up the roots and raked over the ground. My question, is it safe to grow other veggies on the patch straight away?

This is very effective at killing viruses and bacteria that may be harboring in them and hurting your plants.
