Plants for the shade!
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. Good to know!
We grow lemons, limes, tangelo's, blood oranges, kaffir limes and cumquats in pots at #UrbanFarmhouseAU HQ. The key is to feed them well with acidic organic matter like onion and tomato skins, citrus peel kitchen scraps plus some dry leaves. In hot weather, make sure they don't dry out and make your garden bee friendly so the the flowers bear fruit.
Lemon Tree in a container. I want!
Grow carrots in a pot. Clever - really clever.
This really works - no weeds for two years!! The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.
Brick pavers make a simple, handsome border and work well as edging material too. They're ideal when you want a wide border that keeps grass out of the garden, yet allows flowers and other plants to spill over without intruding onto the grass. You're less likely to chop them up with the lawn mower.
Good tips for Coleus. Feeding & care, landscape use, taking cuttings, baskets etc.
