Keeping your window boxes disease free


Prevention of disease begins when you must make sure that all your window boxes are scrupulously clean. New window boxes should not need any cleaning, but used window boxes should be washed. Wooden window boxes  will need to be vigorously scrubbed, and treated periodically with a timber preservative that will not harm plants.
This advice also applies to seed trays, small planters a any pots used to raise seedlings. Ideally, window boxes should  be washed as soon as they are emptied so they are ready for use when needed. En accessories such as canes and labels carry disease and should also be disinfected before they are put in storage.
Cleaning any walls around your window boxes regularly will remove the dirt and algae that invariably collects. But this does more than just make the area look better, it will also help to destroy any disease-carrying organisms that may be lurking in the cracks and crevices.  Tool cleanliness is also crucial: many diseases are passed from plant to plant on dirty secateurs. When pruning think of yourself as a surgeon, and wipe the blades of your secateurs,

and wipe the blades of your secateurs with a cloth  soaked in disinfectant before moving on to the next plant. Bacteria  and fungi can also be spread on your fingers, so remember to wash  your hands from  time to time while working in the garden.
Never reuse old compost. Not only  will it contain  an imbalance  of plant foods  by the end of the season, but it may also harbour  disease spores  and bacteria,  which will be carried  over to the next planting.You can usually spread old compost over the garden or on the compost heap.

Keeping your window boxes disease free


However, certain diseases, such as tomato and potato blight,  contaminate  the soil so much  that it is best to throw away  any compost that plants affected with these problems have grown in.
Nip disease in the bud
Always  remove  dead  flowers and leaves, and any other unhealthy  plant material as soon as you spot  them.
Clean the area  around your, window boxes  regularly,  and never compost  anything  that you know to be infected.
Like people, plants under  stress  are more vulnerable to disease  than those  bursting  with vitality.
Keep plants well fed  to give them the best chance of survival. Fertilisers  that are high in phosphates and potash  produce  strong root systems  and tough, disease-resistant  growth, while those with high levels  of nitrogen can encourage  lax, soft growth, which is easily invaded  by diseases.
Under watering  also puts plants under stress, making them vulnerable  to disease, while plants  grown in waterlogged window boxes  will have  poor root health  and weak, sickly  growth.
