Considering I just leave my own garden to it these days – think jungle style garden – I really should make note of the gardening hacks myself and put them to good use! With Spring on the horizon, I say the horizon as apparently we did have snow this morning, everyone wants to tidy up their gardens, mow the lawns and generally have a pretty space to look at when the sun is shining.
Repelling slugs with a pot of beer is a tip I have grown up with, thanks to my Grandfather who was an avid gardener. Alas, I still do not have a garden that rivals his! I do quite like the idea of starting my own compost and as tip number 9 shows, it is quite easy to start with old fruit and veg which are still high in nutrients. You will actually need to build a compost enclosure, but it will certainly be a benefit to your garden.
Care for seeds by providing their own little greenhouse with a plastic bottle cut in half – tip number 15 suggests you can also use this tip with herbs. Such a simple gardening hack that is also fun to do with children in order to engage them with how much fun gardening actually is.
