Whether you have a vegetable garden, rose garden or weed garden, here is the best round up of gardening tips and ideas that you've probably never tried! All of these little tricks are resourceful ideas for a beginner or even the novice green thumb.
Take that mosquitos!- Mosquito trap - Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.
This actually worked! I tried it in a small pot. Put plastic wrap over it to keep it moist. Sprouted in 3-4 weeks. I only had 8 seeds because my lemons didn't have very many so i only have a few sprouts, plant as many seeds as you can.
Tree Stump Removal - Get rid of tree stumps by drilling holes in the stump and filling them with 100% Epsom salt. Follow with water, and wait. Live stumps may take as long as a month to decay, and start to decompose all by themselves.
Tomatoes need calcium to achieve their full flavor potential, and calcium is often greatly lacking in our soils. 95% of a dry eggshell is calcium carbonate. When planting your tomato plants crush up (to powder) about 4 or 5 egg shells and put them in the bottom of the hole. Then plant your tomato on top. They'll provide calcium and prevent blossom end rot.
