Some Very Hand Hints

by Mrspeo
(Merseyside)

Love the blog as hubby and I also growing veg in pots and enjoying eating own, organic, perfectly fresh produce whilst saving money. Would like to share some ideas:


a Nettle fertiliser (free - instructions on internet); use large plastic bottles to make this.

b) The real seed catalogue (grow plants, harvest seed and use these in following year - company is on internet);

c) Cut rings from a plastic bottle,serrated edges by making alternating cuts with scissors, then use rings to encircle seedlings - deters slugs while plants establish.

d) Retain "funnel" of the same plastic bottle,invert, press deep into soil to precisely direct watering to roots.

e Remove base from large plastic bottle, remove top and use as a cloche; top can be replaced at night to keep plant warm.

f) Fit "rose" (available at gardening centre for 50p) to small plastic drinks bottle to produce mini watering can.

Happy gardening!
