|I have 2 large raised vegetable garden beds. I have had them for 6 years. Last year I found out that I have destructive nematodes that fixed to the roots of my peppers and tomatoes and killed them. How do I get rid of them. I garden organically. Thank you.|
|Your best bet is to grow nematode-resistant vegetable varieties. The most nematode resistant variety I have ever grown, here in the Jacksonville area, is 'Better Boy'. 'Celebrity' and 'Big Beef' are also resistant as is a paste tomato called 'Viva Italia Hybrid'.

Good luck with your garden!
