Wet newspapers and put layers around the plants overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspaper. Good composting!
Blue Glow Stones: Add a little nighttime magic to your yard. Sack of approx. 230 acrylic "stones" trims your garden with moon glow. They soak up the sun and at twilight, release it to create a stunning lighting effect along a walk, around a tree, or to highlight other landscape features.
Do this in the fall. Spring bulbs in Pots: store the potted bulbs in an unheated garage or storage room. You'll need to water every few weeks since the pots won't have access to rainfall. In addition to small pots, pack bulbs "shoulder-to-shoulder" in big containers for an abundant display in spring. Toss aside the spacing recommendations so you can get as many bulbs into the container that will fit. I love this!
Love this idea for multiple reasons : 1. Equisetum grows so quickly and make even the newest newbie of a gardener feel accomplished and happy, 2. Equisetum can get out of control and this container will prevent that from happening. I am going to plant some Equisetum in pots this summer to create privacy and cover up some unsightly areas of my yard.
*School Garden idea* An Artistic Gardener's Palette of Colour - a beautiful feature that could be downscaled for a small space or flowers replaced with plants of any kind including edibles, herbs and ground covers. How cool would this be in a kid's garden or playground? | The Micro Gardener
