    Hi,

    I had removed a JM that was almost dead, possibly from fungus or Verticullum Wilt where the branches and buds are 90% dried up.

    I want to reuse the container/planter for a new JM and was wondering if I can just empty out all the soil and just reuse it or do I need to somehow disinfect the container/planter first?

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    I'm not sure HC acid is needed (or easily available), but yes, do scrub it with hot water and strong soap.
