Gardening ideas I love

The potato tower, this is my next garden project. The idea add a 4 to 6 inch level of dirt as the plant grows. The buried portion will turn into root and add more tubers. In theory, you can gain a yield of 100lbs for a single pound seed potatoes (in practice the yield should be around 40lbs). The trick is you need the right kind of potato, The regular russet, red, and yukon golds won't work for this. (See comments for more info.)

Good idea

Soaking seeds before planting is an “old time” gardener’s trick that many new gardeners are not aware of. When you soak seeds before planting, you can significantly decrease the amount of time it takes for a seed to germinate.

Use rocks to separate the grass from the deck, then bury rope lights in the rocks for lighting.

Re-grow Romaine Lettuce Hearts - just cut, place in water, and watch them grow back in days... For real? Gotta try! NEVER ENDING SALAD!

Bowling Balls repurposed - great blog about how to create these, with many more pictures!

great idea, use burlap to hold in soil (instead of those stiff coconut husk liners)

Use rope lights as a bedding border. It’s waterproof and inexpensive!

Disney world does this! Lowes sells the 4 to 6" round PVC pipe with holes already drilled. Purchase an end cap, fill with rock, soil, and plant. I will often put these in the center of a very large pot to stabilize, and add amazing height and color to a container that has trailing plants (no end cap or rock needed if you are placing in a container)

Plant lemon seeds. Lemon leaves smell so good. Put them in a bathroom!

GENIUS…Line a pathway with rocks painted in glow in the dark paint. During the day they “charge” in the sun and in the evening they reflect the stored light. Rust-Oleum Glow in the Dark Brush-on Paint. Do this for the front yard sidewalk

This hanging planter was made from an old funnel, doorknob, and chain.-I would soo do this idea! I always want my garden, to be unique; like me! Not like everyone elses!! That's what makes gardening so much fun!!! It's your own creative expression!!
