Willow Tea as a Rooting Hormone: Willow bark contains natural plant growth hormones & thus is a FREE easy to make rooting hormone used to propagate plant cuttings. How to make Willow Tea: Collect young twigs/stems of any of willow species with green or yellow bark. Remove all leaves. Cut the twigs into short pieces about 1", & place them in a heatproof container. Cover the cut stems with boiling water, just as you would when brewing tea. Allow the willow and water to steep overnight. Gardens Fun, Propagation Plants, Plants Growth, Plants Cut, Natural Plants, Plants Propagation, Gardens Delight, Willow Teas, Gardenfarm Ideas

Protect seeds from moisture, heat, and fluctuating temperatures -- learn how to store them properly.

Martha Stewart Living Store seed packets in an airtight container, such as a canning jar with a new lid. Then make moisture-absorbing sachets by wrapping 2 tablespoons of untreated cat litter (or powdered milk) in a double layer of tulle. Put the jar in a cool, dark place.
Martha Stewart- Tip for saving seeds
seed storage tips To ensure that seeds wake up refreshed from their long winter naps, take the time to tuck them in properly. Moisture, heat, and fluctuating temperatures are a seed's worst enemy, so don't simply abandon your leftover packets to the elements by leaving them in a garden shed. By the next spring they will have lost much of their vigor -- the ability to germinate quickly and healthily -- and many may have died. Instead, place packets in an airtight container, such as a canning jar with a new lid. Then make a few moisture-absorbing sachets to store with them by wrapping 2 tablespoons of untreated cat litter (avoid colored or scented litters) or powdered milk in a double layer of tulle. Close the lid tightly, and put the jar in a cool, dark place.

Natural Pesticide: Liquefy two bulbs of garlic and 1-1/2 cups of water to create concentrated garlic tea, a good all-purpose insecticide that makes crops undesirable to pests. Strain any solids out of the mixture and add enough water to make a gallon. Use this concentrate right away, or freeze in 1/4-cup muffin tins to use later.

Nature's own pest control. Marigolds repel insects. French marigolds repel whiteflies and kill bad nematodes. Mexican marigolds are said to offend a host of destructive insects and wild rabbits as well. The scent is what works as a repellant. I've never made them into "tea" but I hear that works as a spray. Caroline Gerardo. Just plant them nearby...

Three sisters: Plant corn, beans and squash together. Corn takes nitrogen, beans replace and grow up the corn stalks, squash is a natural "mulch" moisture barrier. Native American method.
Corn Stalks, Beans, Companion Plants, Vegetables Gardens, Plants Corn, Squash, Companion Planting, Three Sisters, Native American
Companion Planting, The Three Sisters Method: Plant corn, beans and squash together. 1. Corn needs nitrogen. 2. Beans provide soil with nitrogen. 3. Corn stalks act as a natural wigwam, giving the beans support so they can reach the sun. 4. Squash is a natural "mulch" i.e. a moisture barrier that stops the soil drying out, and deters weeds. From the Native Americans.
