Get The Best From Your Garden With These Tips

You will find that some of your houseplants would like to be re-potted, while others are quite happy where they are. You can easily check which of your plants need re- potting by turning them upside down, tapping their container until the plant willingly falls out. If you can only see the roots, that means you need a new pot. However, if you see few to no roots, you can leave the plant in its current pot. Ammonia and water is a great combination to deter snails when sprayed in your garden. The mixture won’t hurt plants, and will convert to nitrogen, which is beneficial to gardens. It does kill snails in your garden, which will stop them from damaging your beds. For best results you’re going to want to use this mixture daily.

A great garden starts from the seeds and not from the plants. The environmentally conscious way to start a new garden is to start with seeds. Very few nurseries recycle the plastics that they use as containers for their plants, so the majority of these containers are thrown away and dumped in landfills. Therefore, it is better for the environment to plant a garden with seeds or to find a nursery that packages its plants using organic materials.
