Here are some of the most useful gardening tips and tricks.
1.Mix equal parts of white vinegar, rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle and spray the mixture to the pot. Take a plastic brush and scrub gently. Wait for a few minutes and allow it to dry before planting anything. This technique is quite useful in removing salt deposits formed on clay pots.
2.One of the major problems is the dirt that accumulates under your fingernails while working in the garden. To get rid of this, draw your fingernails across a bar of soap. This will seal the undersides of your nails and dirt won’t collect beneath nails. After finishing gardening, remove the soap with the help of a nailbrush.
3.Spray some vegetable oilon your string trimmer and it won’t jam or break while you work in the garden.
4.Don’t have a measuring stick? Do it yourself! Take a long-handled tool and write inch and foot marks on it with a permanent marker. This will be of great help in measuring the distance between your plants.
5.Attach a ball of twine to a clay pot and pull the end of the twine through the drainage hole. Put it upside down and your problem of twine will be completely sorted.
6.To save your plants from sudden, overnight frosts and freezes, use little clay pot as cloches.
7.You can easily turn a clay pot into a hose guide. All you have to do is take a one-foot long steel and place it into the ground at the corner of a bed. Now place two clay pots over it in opposite directions. This will save your plants from any damage when you drag the hose along the bed.
8.Take a permanent marker and stone with flat faces. Write the names of the plant on the stone with that marker and put them near the base of your plant.
9.Aphids can be controlled with insecticidal soap or a strong blast of water from the hose. Another way is to wrap some tape around your hand and keep the sticky side out. Now pat the leaves that have aphids. The maximum aphids are on the inside of the leaves so make sure to focus on that.
10.Use the vegetable stock on water potted patio plants. You can see your plants responding to the boiled vegetable water.
