Winter advice #679

Your garden may still need tending to even in the winter time when it doesn't appear as though anything is growing. This is especially important if you live in a climate where winters are cold and dry. If snow doesn't cover your garden all winter and there isn't a lot of precipitation, then the garden should be watered at least once a month. Wait until the temperature rises enough to thaw out the ground and then give it a good soak. This will keep your soil rich and help your plants significantly when the long-awaited spring weather finally arrives.

Hardening off seedlings for the big move #2315

About two weeks before the seedlings are to be transplanted to the garden allow slightly more time between watering. Don’t let plants wilt, but do force their roots to reach down for water. At the same time, discontinue all fertilizing, during the same time period, place the pots outside during the warmest part of each day and gradually increasing the period until, within 10 days they are able to stay outside all day, bring them in at night to prevent frost damage.

Going on vacation and no one to water the houseplants? #2551

A cotton shoestring can serve as a wick to add moisture to the soil, just push one end deep into the soil around the roots and the other end in a bucket of water. You’ll come back to see the plants did not miss you.

Weeds #5203

Soak weeds in cracks of sidewalks and patios with boiling water or vinegar; which will kill them and cost a lost less than commercial weed killer and helps the environment: Save money by diluting one part vinegar to two or three parts water.
