Aspirin water has disease-prevention properties that can protect plants. Dissolve aspirin (1.5 pills per 2 gallons of water) in a bucket and administer to your plants. Next, coat the plant with the aspirin mixture by spraying it on the leaves. Apply this solution to your plants every few weeks.
If you are growing plants inside of your home, you need to keep the thermostat set to 65 to 75 degrees during the day. The temperature needs to remain steady and warm so the plants can grow. Heat lamps can be used to promote growth without the necessity of raising your home’s interior temperature.
Have your gardening tools near you to minimize the time spent searching for them. You can make use of a bucket, or wear pants that have plenty of pockets. Keep your gloves, a trowel, small pruning shears and other tools handy and make quick work of your garden maintenance.
Use approximately two or three inches of natural, organic material as some mulch in every single flower bed. Using this much mulch retards weed growth, locks in moisture, and ensures that your plants are well-nourished. It also adds a uniform and cohesive look to the garden.
Don’t use pesticides – kill your weeds naturally! Put down old newspapers in several layers for controlling weeds. Weeds need sun for growth, just like any other plant. They will suffocate and die if you cover them with newpapers. Because newspapers decompose well with the passage of time, they make great additions to compost. To improve the appearance of newspaper, simply spread a bit of mulch over it.
Consider adding mulch for healthier soil. The mulch will protect the soil underneath it. It prevents soil temperature from getting too warm on hot, sunny days, which protects your plants’ roots. This will ensure your soil stays moist by reducing the time in which it evaporates. This also helps all the weeds you have stay under control, relieving stress from your shoulders.
