Cleaning pots or not

Do we need to wash the pots after every use or will any bugs just die over time.

    They will- but to be on the safe side if you are using them for seed sowing them I would say yes,you don't want some nasty breeding in a nice warm propogator-probably not so vital for potting on established plants.

    Thanks I can see that makes sense.

    I have a black dustbin, the type we had before wheelie bins. It's filled with water and a good swig or 2 of jeyes fluid, I wash any pots/trays/cells that I'm going to use, then I soak them for 30mins. Taking no risks, I grow lots of plants. image

    I say yes, you should.
