Let's Clean Our Garden Planters!

Since we are a number one source for garden containers on the web, lets share a tip on how to keep those pots healthy and looking good.

You say healthy?  Yes, we did!  You need to wash your pots and continue to keep them clean from season to season and here's why.  Pots that are dirty can contain pests, bacteria and fungus that can harm your new plants once they are planted.  Since plants and soil that are contained in a garden pot can't rely on the earths soil to help fight off damaging and unhealthy bacteria, you must be extra careful.  

Don't take this wrong.  We love garden pottery!  When it comes to growing flower or veggies in containers there is nothing more satisfying and creative.  Contained gardens are perfect for small spaces like a balcony or roof top garden, how about a different herb in each pot right outside a kitchen window. The possibilities are endless but we just want you to be cautious with your pottery so that you will have great success year after year.

Here are some basic steps.  Brush the pots to remove any dried dirt or debris that may have attached itself.  Fill a large container with warm soapy water using dish soap.  Add a cup of vinegar and brush thoroughly.  Rinse the pots off and leave them to dry outside in the sun or in a dish strainer in the house.

Now the pots are ready for planting.  This simple step should ensure that your plant will start healthy and remain healthy.  Potted plants, herbs, & veggies. Nothing better
