Container cleanup

Make prepping for container season as easy as possible!

Instead of struggling to loosen dried, compacted roots at the bottom of a container, attach your bulb auger, left, to an electric drill, and run it inside the pot. The roots, along with old potting mix, will come loose without much effort or risk of damaging the container.
