In a nutshell, what's your cleverest gardening tip?


If you like to garden, in the ground or in containers, share with me a little tip or two of things you like to do. I container garden myself and I've found over the last couple of years that honey works better for me as a rooting hormone for plant cuttings than store-bought rooting hormone.

    Considering I have a screen porch container garden in a condo complex I can't compost. I wish I could have chickens and compost, that'd be awesome (I buy commercial compost & usually use it for mulch & compost tea fertilizers).

    Regular store-bought real honey. Someone told me a couple yrs ago it's antifungal and antimicrobial so it protects cuttings while they root. It worked so well I did some research & found some studies suggest it facilitates rooting.

    Thanks Eira! Comfrey is something I have not grown, but I have worked with the herb purchased at organic herb stores. I'm going to look into it.

    Hi Lady! That's cool--children's windmills! I have heard that scattering human hair keeps deer away- do you know anything about that? Deer aren't an issue for me in the city with a screen porch, lol, but I'm curious and I'm sure it'll help others.

    Oh that's brilliant. I was just grumbling and scrubbing my nails again this morning after having my hands in the dirt.
