Spring will soon be here before you know it and the pruning season will start at its earnest.  With that in mind, you want to make sure your pruning tools are in good order.  You do not want rose diseases transmitted between pruning your roses.  To remove rust and buildup of plant saps on your pruners’ blades, rub them with a green pot scrubber.  Some rosarians have had great success with the Scotch Brite pot scrubbers that come in package of 3-6.  Spray the blades with a Lysol solution.  Use the old-fashioned Lysol disinfectant at the antiviral, antibacterial dose - 1 capful in an 8-ounce of water in a spray bottle.   The Lysol does not rust your blades like bleach tends to do.
