Impressing guests and neighbors is easy as long as you have the time and desire to turn your garden into a majestic place, which doesn’t take a lot of effort. Any human being loves to have a garden that looks beautiful and understanding how to get there is more than half of the battle. But the secret word that leads to a magical garden is Tricks.
Today, I have gathered for you many simple gardening tricks that will save the life of your plants and make them look extra gorgeous. Are you ready?
Moss in the Boss
In order to give your garden a personality, go for moss! There are many debates about the moss and in case it is edible or not, but what we don’t care as long as we know that the moss is the greatest choice for your garden. Not only it will make it look attractive and beautiful, but it will also cut off the weed’s oxygen supply and help you get rid of them.
Decorate your garden’s floor with moss and in case you were desperate, we are giving you the permission to eat it. You never know, it could save your life after all.
Wine Bottles for Watering
Watering plants could be an exhausting activity, especially if you are a busy person with an active lifestyle. So if you want to water your plants every day without the need of you doing it daily, then just fill in a wine bottle with water, and stick in a pot upside down. The water will start to release slowly over time helping the plant to live longer and decreasing your concerns about it.
DIY Seed Tape
Seed tape could cost a lot more money than you expect, which is why we discovered a way to DIY it in a cheap, quick, and fun way. You will need water, toilet paper, and flour. Simply, create a paste by mixing the water and flour together, then gently paint it into the toilet paper.
The next step is to space out the seeds on the paste laying out the tape in your garden. You see? It is quick, cheap, and effective.
Protect from Frost
The biggest enemies of the plants are the cold snaps and the overnight frosts; they can kill them in two seconds. Fortunately, there is a way to save them all, and it is by using milk jugs, yup! Simply, cut off the milk jug’s bottom then place it over your fragile, weak plants. The plastic will keep the plants safe from the instant garden death, and will also help regulate the temperature.
Star and Heart Vegetables
Have you ever thought if it is possible to mold fruits and vegetables into any shape you want? I hope you have because the answer is yes and the way to do it is very simple. Once you will know how you will be like “ohhhh!”
All that you need to do is to purchase the kits that are responsible for growing your tomatoes into a neat shape, like a heart or a star, and that’s it. This is what I call creative gardening!
DIY Fresh Basil
Eating clean and growing our own herbs is becoming a necessity since all what we see in stores are unhealthy products. In order to grow them, you will have to soak the basil stems in water after purchasing fresh ones. Soon enough, you will start to notice thin “cute” roots beginning to grow. It may take only a few weeks. That’s how you know that they are ready to be planted.
Reunite Roses and Potatoes
This is one of my favorite tricks because it is so cool, and you have to try it. If you want to grow your own rose bushes but you find them a little too expensive, you can then buy a few roses individually, dip the end in cinnamon after you cut one inch off the stem, then “plant” it inside a potato.
Yup, isn’t it cool? Anyway, make sure to plant the potatoes in your garden, and a few months later, you will have your own rose bush.
