Re: crop rotation advise needed.

I had a Japanese maple that died of verticillium wilt. Will never plant a maple in that location again. I suspect that attempting to rid the soil of the organism would be an exercise in futility. How big is your garden? Can you do tomatoes and their relatives anywhere else? If not, investigate resistant tomatoes. My problem with solarizing is the length of time required. It is my understanding that you would probably have to spend a growing season doing it to be effective. As for alternative crops, if you are not sure which you have, lettuce and carrots are the only vegetables resistant to both.

Hi all-

Spring is almost here! I have daffodils, snow drops, grape hyacinths and an
anemone blooming (it has been non-stop since November!) Anyway- here's my
question. The place I usually plant my tomatos apparently has verticillium
or fusarium (can't recall which right now)wilt. I understand that it is
virtually impossible to remove this from the soil and that I shouldn't plant
tomaotos, peppers or potatos there. So, what is ok to plant there? How
many years should i wait before I plant tomotos there again??

Thanks for any help-
