All greenhouses gather dirt throughout the year. It is imperative to keep the greenhouse as clean as possible to prevent the buildup of diseases and pests. Be sure to keep the floor swept and to clean the corners of the greenhouse where leaves, potting soil, and algae build up.
Another way to keep the greenhouse tidy is to clean your flowers pots after use.
When a plant dies, or you transplant one to a larger container, be sure to cleanse the container. Bugs and scale will continue to grow in the remaining potting soil, on the bottom of the pot, and under the lips. Pictured above are the Solar’s potting containers after the winter wash. We use a mixture of water, non-toxic dish detergent, and a dash of vinegar.
