Potato Blight ?

Posted: 08/01/2012 at 13:45

Year one growing potatos in containers was successful. Year two i planted early variety in November 2011 which have failed with first frost. Top foliage fell over and died away.What i need to know is, do i excavate the tubers and destroy them and do i have to discard the soil they were growing in , and do i have to decontaminate the containers and with what ?

I think its blight, as the leaves collapsed and died away.
Do i now have to dig up the tubers and destroy ? Do i have to discard all of the soil in the containers ( Top Soil from garden Centre )? Do i have to deep clean the containers? How ?
many thanks
