Life's a Garden

This is the first edging I have ever seen that I like. It allows the lawn mower to cut right up to the edge!

Put a couple of pennies in the soil with your hydrangeas to turn them blue

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. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work.

List of plants that will grow in the shade, including foxglove: peace lily, spider plants, jacob's ladder, meadowsweet, Virginia bluebell, columbine, foxglove, flax lili, English ivy, coleus, fuchsia, impatiens, bleeding heart, hosta, solomon's seal, jumpseed, Japanese anemone, leopard plant, ferns. Great for container gardening and the back of my house that has plenty of shade.
