Garden Tips Hints and Cool Things

March 23, 2012

1) If you are getting ready to sow wildflower seeds, use an empty Parmesan cheese shaker. Fill with a mixture of fine sand and seeds. Then simply shake to spread the seeds as you are planting. The seeds will distribute more evenly. This will also save time.

2) Slugs and snails are coming out. Handpick or place empty 10 to 14oz cans in the ground with the rim at ground level. Fill with beer. The slugs and snails will crawl in for a delicious drink but they won’t get out.

3) Humming birds have arrived, so clean feeders and fill with sugar-water:  One part sugar to four parts water, boiled until dissolved, and completely cooled.

If you have garden tips, hints, or something cool or interesting to share, email them to inthegarden@softcom.net and I will post them along with your name.

Happy Friday!

A Cool Thing:

Read this interesting article on possible future agriculture using LEDs, climate and water control indoors.

Tip:

1)   Want butterflies to your garden? Provide a water source like a shallow bowl filled with a few stones for the butterflies to land on and grab a drink.

FYI:

1) A ‘Search Box’ is now added at the top of the sidebar. This will allow you to search for a topic, name, etc. within In and Around the Garden. If the full article does not appear, simply click on the article’s title.

2) In and Around the Garden now has it’s own Facebook user name:  facebook.com/inandaroundthegarden
