Propagating Hydrangeas: How to root hydrangea cuttings.
Rooting hydrangea cuttings - Locate a stem of softwood and cut a shoot that has several leaves. Trim it into 5-inch-long pieces that each have a leaf toward the top. Remove extra leaves; then cuts the remaining leaf in half to minimize evaporation (and the need for watering). Dip the other end in powdered rooting hormone; plant the cuttings in trays filled with a soilless mix and perlite. Cover with a plastic bag, and stash in a shady location, misting regularly to keep the leaf hydrated.

How to make a raised garden bed cover... If one cuts the 5 or 5 each 1/2" PVC pipes down to about 8 feet long over a not more than four feet wide raised bed, you can use cheap 10' wide painters plastic cut from a much longer roll after anchoring it with old bricks, boards, cans of water around the edges of the raised bed when cold snaps loom. (Leave them covered a couple days after cold snaps to raise the soil temperature a bit, too. But not so long as to cause a heavy moisture build up.)

Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your berries when they ripen because the birds will think the ripened berries are stones
Ideas, Painting Rocks, The Real, Stones Painting, Gardens, Strawberries Rocks, Strawberries Plants, Birds, Painting Stones
The theory: Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your berries because by the time the real berries ripen the birds have become conditioned to think the ripened berries are stones. I'm going to try this next spring; The children will love painting stone berries! (Click through for a detailed painting tutorial.) it would be super cute to scatter them in the garden even if the theory doesn't work!!
I have no idea if this works, but I kind of like the idea of a bowl full of painted stones. : Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your berries when they ripen because the birds will think the ripened berries are stones

DIY Drip Irrigation System, Made from Plastic Bottles. The 'system' is super simple. All we have to do is grab some 2-liter plastic bottles, punch 2 holes into the sides and 2 into the bottom, and plant said bottles next to our plants. Fill them with water and our plants will get that slow watering they prefer. For more information about the project, visit Fine Craft Guild.

How to grow cilantro - Try this method for a fast, continuous crop
A better way to grow cilantro for a fast, continuous crop Wouldn't it be nice to have fresh cilantro growing right outside your kitchen door? Whenever you wanted to fix salsa or guacamole, or a Middle Eastern yogurt sauce for your lamb kabobs, there the lacy, sweetly pungent leaves would be, ready to harvest. But if you've ever tried to grow it, you've probably noticed that cilantro yields a fast crop; plants are barely up before they try to flower and set seeds. So those tasty leaves aren't around long, especially in warm weather. More about cool-season crops To keep leaves coming, you can sow seeds every two weeks for a continuous cilantro crop. Or, even better, try the method we perfected in Sunset's test garden last year: Grow cilantro as you would mesclun. Sow seeds thickly in a wide, shallow container; then, as soon as plants are 3 to 4 inches tall and sporting a couple of cuttable leaves, use scissors to cut off some foliage for cooking as shown. Shear from a different section of the container every time, rotating the pot as you go and never letting plants in any area mature. By the time you get back to the first section harvested, new leaves will have appeared. Cilantro growing tips 1. Select a bowl-shaped container at least 18 inches wide and 8 to 10 inches deep. 2. Fill the pot with a fast-draining potting soil; mix in an organic granular fertilizer. 3. Before seeding, moisten the soil using a fine spray from the hose. Because the seeds are fairly small, mix them in a bowl with sand (3 parts sand to 1 part seed) so they'll disperse more evenly. Sow the seeds, then cover lightly with soil. 4. Gently mist the soil so as not to displace the seeds. 5. Place containers in full sun or, if you live in a hot climate, light shade. Seeds should germinate in 7 to 10 days. 6. Harvest at least weekly to keep leaves coming. Using this method, it's possible to harvest four crops of cilantro from a single pot.
