Springtime has arrived, which means it’s a great opportunity to spruce up your garden by dusting off your gardening gloves and clearing away any debris. Before you head to your local gardening center, consider taking stock of what items you already have at home that could make your outdoor or indoor space more efficient.
In life, shortcuts are often appreciated, so why not utilize some garden hacks to boost your productivity when caring for your plants? Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Transform a plastic bottle into a self-watering gardening tool by hammering a nail through the lid and filling the bottle with water. Insert the bottle into your plant’s soil upside down, and water will slowly drip out of the cap while you’re away.
Use citrus peels as a non-toxic insecticide to keep bugs away. Chop the peels into small pieces and scatter them on the soil or create a citrus spray by blending the dried peels and adding them to a spray bottle to mist your plants.
Repurpose coffee filters or pantyhose to slow down water drainage in garden soil. Line the bottom of your pot with a coffee filter or pantyhose to prevent water from running right through garden soil and to keep drainage holes clog-free.
Use stale ice cream cones as biodegradable seed starters. Just fill the cone with soil and seeds, and when your plant outgrows the cone, stick the whole thing in the ground.
Utilize baking soda as a garden hack to produce sweeter tomatoes by sprinkling it directly onto the soil around the plant to neutralize acidity. You can also boost calcium levels by using antacid mixed with water or sprinkle eggshells around the plant to promote growth and deter slugs.
