Consider a few tips when potting plants for around your home and garden areas. 
 
1.  Keep soil clean and correct.  There are different types of soil that can be purchased from your local garden center.  Make sure you match the correct soil with the types of plants, flowers, or veggies that you are going to be potting.  Good garden soil actually can deter pests.

2.  Buy pest and disease seeds.  When buying seeds, search for letters like V.F.N or T after the name of a seed; they indicate the problems to which the seeds is most resistant.  If using grown plants make sure there are no weeds being transferred into the new pot.  They often harbor insects and disease organisms.
 
3.  Decaying plant matter is prime breeding ground for fungus, insects and disease, so remove faded blooms, fallen leaves and weeds is key.  Every time you visit your garden area or sit next to your potted plants, bring a small bucket and take a minute to tidy up.

4.  If you find you must use insecticides, try to use natural products.  They will break down quickly in your garden planters when exposed to air and light.  Be sure to read and follow the directions because these products can be harmful if use improperly.
