baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall.* Going to try this *

Repel the Pests Keep slugs and aphids away from window boxes with a homemade, nonchemical pest spray. Place one peeled onion, two peeled garlic cloves, and one teaspoon cayenne pepper in the jar of a blender. Add three cups of water, and blend until smooth. Let the mixture sit overnight, strain the liquid into a spray bottle, and coat plants generously. The solution will keep, refrigerated in the bottle, for up to one week

Newspaper Weeds Away Start putting in your plants; work the nutrients into your soil. Wet newspapers and put layers around the plants overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers.

~buried pots to contain herbs - LOVE this idea. I have done this with flowers before too. Having the plants in pots like this you can have really good potting soil for the root system.
