Gardening is an art, although many do not consider it and practiced from thousands of years ago. The creation of beautiful natural landscapes gives rise to what is known today as landscaping. Thanks to this art, have been created wonders such as the missing gardens of Babylon or the famous gardens of Versailles.
We, obviously, can not opt to create works of this magnitude. However, affection and commitment we put into our plants, cannot be denied.
For all those who enjoy pruning, planting, and watering their plants them we have prepared a few ideas and tips, which we are sure you will love.
Some tricks are so that your plants grow stronger and quickly, others are just to decorate. There are tricks for everyone and they are inexpensive and very interesting.
1 use a mold of cupcakes to sow the seeds more effectively
Most of the people only used moulds cakes or muffins to bake these delicious candies. But they can also be useful when it comes to planting our garden. Its peculiar form will help us to create a perfect grid, thus sowing the seeds of the most logical way possible.
2 glass bottles to mark road
There are an incredible amount of bottles with different forms that we throw away directly after use. Instead, you can nail them face down and define a path or highlight any area. Combining different bottle shapes and colors you can get spectacular things.
3 create “tags” for your plants with a spoon and a hammer
First look for a few old spoons that you are not going to use. Crushed a hammer until the flatter are possible. It adds color and already is:
Any color will be great. Just let your creativity fly. Once the paint has dried, you can nail on the ground and so have a garden tidy and identified.
You can also use plastic spoons, there is a rule for that
Disposable plastic spoons serve the same function. But they do not need you aplanes them.
4. Another way to identify plants
Another way to label our plants in with the help of soda cans. Once we have finished us drink, you only have to cut the top with help of a can opener.
A little spray paint
We paint the boats with a bit of spray paint. Layers, apply until the drawing of logos, and the brand that has printed, are completely covered.
A little imagination, land and is already
Draw a label with chalkboard paint, as you like and you almost got it. Only you must put some land inside, planting the seed that you prefer and go.
5 keep your plants watered
This is a very useful trick, because if you go on vacation or don’t have all the time that you would like to to take care of your plants, a glass bottle may be the solution. You should only fill it with water and nail close to the plant as quickly as possible, to avoid pouring the liquid. This home Automatic watering will allow the plant survive longer without having to water them personally. Although it is not the ultimate solution as there is, also, to remember to fill the bottle from time to time.
6. no boats the old sink
Surely at some point in our lives we will face any reform of the bathroom. If so, you don’t think about throwing away the old sink, we can reuse it as a planter. We will save us a trip to the landfill and others will be beautiful.
7 avoid that animals will eat your seeds
There are many animals that take advantage of our gardens to provide easy and fast food. Most often birds and peck the seeds until they sprout. Nailing some few holders of plastic around our plants will create an uncomfortable enough soil for any bird wants to settle in the.
8 half wind chime, half pot
We will only need an old colander, some metal spoons and some key rings. Nothing else.
Cute and cheap
With these 3 elements we manufacture our own pot chime. Whenever the wind blows a little, your sound will remind us the day we did.
9. no cans banana peels
Most are just garbage. For those who have discovered the magic of compost, they are worth their price in gold. Once broken down, banana peels are added calcium, magnesium, sulfur, phosphates, potassium and sodium to the ground.
Or the remains of coffee
After enjoying a cup of coffee, the best we can do with the dregs remaining in the coffee maker is scattered throughout the land of our garden. Plants like hydrangeas rhododendrons and blueberries will be very grateful and happy.
And less you egg shell them
Plants need calcium to grow, just like humans. Egg shells provide this mineral from a fast and cheap way. You just have to let them dry for about 3 days and then we will make the crumbs on the ground.
10 glass bottles as pots
What is difficult is to make a cut in one side of the bottle, but if we succeed, we can get some beautiful and ecological pots. Just fill them with some sand, seeds, and is already ready. Now we can hang them where we look well or leave them in a balcony. We are confident that these tricks of garden you helped to and gave you ideas for your garden.
