For some, gardening is a hobby, while for others it’s like meditation – bringing you peace being around nature. And you don’t need a whole lot of area to be a gardener.
You can make a small garden in the backyard of your home too. And you don’t need to even need frequent trips to the local gardening store for supplies.
If you want to include gardening in your routine, here are some home gardening tips to turn your house into a green creative space –
Use lemon as starter pots
Instead of putting the new plants in the cruel world out, starter pots are must-haves for the gardener in you.
The starter pots help the plants properly build their root system. Using big lemons for this purpose also helps the plants in getting beneficial acid feeding.
You need to scoop out the pulp in the middle, put soil and then watch your tiny seedling grow. It can also act as a temporary home for small plants in winter or growing small full shade plants.
Use the eggshells
Eggs are good for health, for humans as well as plants. But plants need the shells. Eggshells are rich in calcium and plants need it to stay strong.
So, store those shells instead of throwing and when you have a lot, grind them up into a powder. And? Mix in the soil.
You can also use the eggshells as a pot for seedlings to grow as you did with lemons above. It gives the plant a chance to get calcium, magnesium and other nutrients from the eggshells and thus, grow strong.
Make your roses blemish-free
Everyone loves beauty, and the best home gardening tip for a beautiful rose garden is careful pruning.
No matter what the color is, the rose flowers need ample sunlight to bloom to full glory, and pruning helps in it. It also keeps the moisture away which is responsible for black spots on the flower.
Join toilet paper rolls
One of the eco-friendly gardening ways is to use paper as starter pots. Once the seedling is ready, you can transfer the whole pot in your garden outside.
Paper is biodegradable and won’t harm the soil. You can use a regular paper to shape it as a pot.
Using the waste part of toilet paper roll can make your task easier. Just make four vertical cuts and fold them to make a base for your pot. It will also be stronger than regular paper
DIY Weed Killer
Vinegar has a strong odor that can help keep weeds away. Pick up an empty sprayer and pour in some vinegar for a quick DIY Weed Sprayer and say goodbye to the time-consuming manual removal. Vinegar used in an appropriate amount can also heal the plants, apart from keeping them away from weeds.
Well, that would be all for today. Tell us in the comments which one of them looks helpful enough to turn you into a local gardening expert.
