Can tomato blight be spread by tillers and tomato cages?
Q. Can tomato blight be spread to a new garden by tiller or tomato cages that came into contact with blight the year before? We are starting a new tomato garden spot this year and really want to keep the blight out!
A. Blight fungi overwinter in the soil and in previously-affected plants. They can stick to surfaces. Your tiller and your cages can carry the pathogens. Disinfect them before using!
