January Gardening Tips

TIP 1: Winter is a great time to take your tools off the shelf and give them a little TLC.  Disinfecting your pruning tools is very important to stop the spread of fungus and disease.  Using Lysol to disinfect causes the least damage to clothes and tools.  Also sharpen and oil your tools to increase their life expectancy!  Don’t forget to clean and sharpen the lawn mower blade.

Tip 2: Clean up used flower pots by soaking in a tub of hot water and liquid bleach. (1 cap bleach to 1 gal water) Allow the water to cool, scrub pots with a stiff brush and rinse well.
