Homemade Weed Killer 1 gallon of white vinegar 1/2 cup salt & Liquid dish soap (any brand) Empty spray bottle Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar.

I WISH I KNEW THIS BEFORE! "When my sister was married, I took the half-dead roses from her bouquet. At home, I rooted them by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. I kept these moist until rooted & planted them in a shaded location in my garden. This year, on her anniversary, she received a gift that can't be replaced: 12 rose bushes from her wedding bouquet."
