Simple Gardening Tips to Improve Your Garden

If you want to improve the quality of your garden, make sure to take these tips into consideration.

You can make your garden look incredible without having to spend thousands of dollars on expensive fertilizer and other gardening equipment. From using leftover ground coffee beans to creating mineral-dissolving solutions to help the quality of your pots. Here are a few simple gardening tips you can use to help improve the quality of your garden.

  1. Remove Salt Deposits

When water seeps through the soil it collects and absorbs some of the minerals found in that soil. When this water settles at the bottom of your clay pot and evaporates, it leaves behind the dissolved minerals in some crusty layer. To remove this layer, mix equal parts rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, and water in a spray bottle.

  1. Protecting the Young Buds

Young budding plants are more susceptible to frosts and freezes, which can kill them overnight. Little clay pots make great insulators and protect these young plants from the forces of nature. Just remember to remove them in the morning so they can continue to absorb precious sunlight.

  1. Vegetable Soup

Your mother told you that vegetables were good for you and it probably took you until your mid-20s to eat them willingly. The next time you boil or steam vegetables, pour the nutrient-rich concoction onto your plants. You’ll be amazed to see how they react to this natural fertilizer!

  1. Control Fungus

Damping-off fungus can attack young seedlings and affect their growth. Just add some leftover tea around the base of seedlings once a week or use it as a foliage spray to control this fungus.
