Mosquito grass (a.k.a. Lemon Grass) repels mosquitoes. The strong citrus odor drives mosquitoes away - very functional patio plant.

Gotta try it. Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. use baking soda around all of the edges of flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall.

8 Perennial Vegetables Anyone Can Grow

Vertical growing allows almost any gardener to find a space for melons. There are many advantages of going vertical with your melon vines. Space is the most obvious. What may have engulfed a 10 to 20 foot wide swath through the garden can be trellised to take up no more than a 3 foot wide "footprint" of garden space.

Cucumbers like it hot. Lettuce likes it cool and shady. But with this trellis, they’re perfect companions! Use this slanted trellis to grow your cucumbers and you’ll enjoy loads of straight, unblemished fruit. Plant lettuce, mesclun or spinach in the shady area beneath to protect it from wilting or bolting. Western red cedar frame and sturdy plastic mesh. 48" square.
