There’s nothing more rewarding than eating a tomato from your own garden or strolling down the aisles of a flower garden.
That’s why I’ve put together a list of my 10 favorite gardening tips that will not only save you time but turn your garden into a green oasis!
1. Roses in potatoes
Using rose stems, you can regrow an entire rose bush by simply placing them in potatoes before planting them in the ground. The potatoes help keep moisture in and stabilize the roots of the rose bush.
2. Epsom salt as fertilizer
Epsom salt can do wonders for your garden. It can help increase nutrient absorption, fortify seed germination, deter pests, improve soil moisture and grow better fruits and vegetables. Use a natural, unscented Epsom salt.
3. Paper towel and water
Most effective for potted plants, this trick will save your plants when you’re away for a few days. Simply place a glass of water next to the plants and push a paper towel into the soil. The water will slowly soak the paper towel and provide the plants with moisture for up to three days.
4. Water plants with a pierced plastic bottle.
5. Plastic forks will protect plants from animals.
