I pulled out all the garden pots we used last year out of the storage box and decided to clean them all to get them ready to sow seeds this week. This is definitely not one of my favorite chores. If you are re-using pots, it's best to give them a good wash, to remove any debris on the pots that might be harboring bacteria and to prevent from transmitting plant diseases that will cause havoc on your new seedlings. I am using a baby bottle brush to scrub the pots, this one has a sponge on the tip, and bristles on the bottom. It's a great little tool to clean out the pots, especially the smaller pots. I find that using a tool like this makes this chore a lot less annoying. I cleaned the pots with a little bleach and water, then washed it with dish detergent. Then I let it air dry before I added starter soil and the seeds. Sow here we go!
