PRUNING hydrangea bushes should be pruned in late fall or early winter or they will not perform well the next year, but it’s an easy winterizing task. Prune them after the last leaves have fallen off and prune the stems of healthy established plants down to 24-36” high which allows for new growth on the canes in the spring. Prune back the number of new stems in the spring if you want larger and less numerous blooms in summer.
Baking Soda Spray for Tomatoes. AND Tomatoes need calcium to achieve their full flavour 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.
