Hi everyone again! Any suggestions for cleansing of pots /canes and greenhouses at the end of year prior to storage please? cheers, Masie.



i have usually used really hot soapy water. failing that jeyes fluid diluted as it says on the tin. clears the sinuses too :o)

I use a cheap disinfectant from the supermarket. The fresh pine smells much nicer than Jeyes :-)

I also use hot soapy water and a stiff brush and rinse with diluted disinfectant and allow to dry naturally. Clean the staging and sweep the floor before washing the inside glass and sluice the floor last. Its the drying that counts which might be difficult now?
