Hot pink rocks for planting succulents

Lots of good planting schemes for containers and gardens

HOW TO MAKE A RAINBOW ROSE: Obtain a perfect white rose with 8-9 inches stem. Cut the end of the stem into 4 equal parts and up 6 inches. Dip the 4 stems ends into 4 cups of food coloring & wait for 24 hours. I suggest these color combinations: red-blue-green-yellow... violet-red-blue-yellow... or yellow-purple-grey-blue. Go to website for more detailed instructions. Fun for the babes!

Plant lemon grass for privacy and to keep the mosquitos away .All Chinese grocery stores have them. They do not have visible roots so just peel off the base, cut the stem in half and soak in water for 1-2 weeks. If you buy 5 or more bunches for bushy effect. For best result in rooting, start them around 3rd or last week of April when the weather is warm enough.

Log Planter - use a hollowed out log or stump as a planter

Before you throw out that old dresser, create roll-away under-bed storage drawers. Love this idea from Better Homes and Gardens. Would be a great shoe storage idea. (wow great idea)

Tomatoes will tell you what they need! Now this is useful

Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. 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 links to great gardening with kids ideas
