Homemade Weed Killer: 1 gallon of white vinegar, 1/2 cup salt, liquid dish soap (any brand). Put salt in an empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way 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.

Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier( Will be glad I pinned this)

Step 2 - Set the tulip bulb on top of the marbles or stones; pointed end UP.

The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in
