Hello Lynda! I’m sorry to hear about those pesky diseases getting in your tomato garden! There are a few different ways to sterilize that may work for you including vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, or bleach. If you decide to go the bleach route, I would say that doing a bleach soak for around 10 minutes of 1 part bleach and 5 parts water may work, but I would also suggest adding Mycostop to your plants as well this year. It does wonders for Fusarium Wilt and I’m sure your garden will appreciate it.

Keep us updated on how it all works out! Those diseases can be pretty tough, especially since the Fusarium Wilt can survive in soil for up to 15 years. Make sure you sterilize your tools too!

Good luck!
