How important is clean gardening equipment?

Clean Your Equipment

Your tools and equipment for the garden will last longer and work better with regular cleaning and maintenance. They also will be less likely to spread disease. Clean your pruning shears, trowels, shovels and spades after each use. At the end of the gardening season, inspect your tools for rust. Then, clean and dry each tool and place the metal end in a bucket of builder's sand for the winter season.
