Hey whats going on guys, this is my first post on the forums so just wanted to say I'm excited that I have stumbled apon this wealth of knowledge. My question is this: I do alot of pruning on very expensive trees, in the magnitude of $60,000.00 exotic tree species. It is common practice for me to bring a bucket of water with about 5% bleach and disinfect my clippers in between each and every cut. In reality, I feel that the bleach is damaging to the plant tissue, along with the prolonged exposure to my hand.
Being so sick of this, along with constantly avoiding spilling the bucket to prevent a large dead spot on a lawn or ground cover, I have decided to invest in the felco f19 pruners with spray technology. I was planning on using general hydroponics florashield in the reservoir for the pruners, that way it would disinfect and help the new cut heal. Could anyone see any reason of this to be a bad idea before I take a $200.00 hit on the f19? Thanks so much.
