"Regrow roses!!! My neighbor has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, he pushes the bottom end into a small potato, which he believes keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works. (quote from link)"

What to Prune When | "Summer-Blooming Trees and Shrubs: Plants that bloom in summer, such as potentilla, butterfly bush, and crape myrtle, produce their flowers on new growth from the current season. Prune them in winter while they're dormant, or in early spring just before they push out their new growth. You can even cut them all the way to the ground in late winter, and they'll still bloom that same summer."

Sprinkle coffee grounds around your vegetables before you water them, you will be activating slow-release nitrogen that will help them grow faster and fuller. Slugs don't like them either!
