Great idea : Potted Candle Planters

DIY Gardening project (craft) - Used a pair of jeans and four two-litre pop bottles. Fill the bottoms of two bottles w/ plaster, saturated the jeans w/ Stiffy Bow, which is a sort of gluey thing that stiffens when it dries, let them dry, and spray on two coats of clear polyurethane. Adorable planter, quick and easy!

Vinegar: Rid your garden of bugs and aphids by spraying your plants with a solution of vinegar and water. 1 cup vinegar to a gallon of water. Vinegar is a natural pesticide so you can get rid of many critters by using a solution mixed with water.

KEEP YOUR GERANIUMS ~ Place upside down in cardboard box or paper bag.....cover with newspaper and store in garage, inside wall. Do not let plants freeze. Leave them in box 'till Spring when you replant them in fresh new soil (miracle grow) works well. Plant will start growing new leaves within a week. Do not cut any stems away for at least 6 weeks, plant will double in size.

Hostas in a pot: every spring they return, in the pot! Add geraniums and ivy for a fuller look.
