Re: QUESTION: Help! Nematodes Are Killing My Beloved Tomatoes

I just joined this website, so maybe you've all figured out the nematode problems. As a Master Gardener, we've been told to amend and constantly enrich the soil. Nematodes do not thrive in rich soil. My soil is pretty poor -- mostly sand, so I do a lot of container gardening; however, I've even had nematodes in my raised veggie bed and large containers!
I believe they were introduced with the plants I bought. I've also been told that if you plant okra, it acts like nematode candy; they love those roots. I'll be putting in some more tomatoes this fall and hopefully, they'll do better?
