Are you a connoisseur in search of new and unique gardening tips? Try these obscure ideas to grow a dream backyard paradise in no time!
Feed It An Egg
Plants need nutrients to grow big and strong! Place a whole raw egg into your pot before adding soil. As it decomposes, the egg will serve as natural fertilizer "food" for your plant. Find out more from the blog at Dream Garden 101.
Toilet paper is made from trees, so it only makes sense to continue the cycle of life and return it to the plant world. Roll up your lettuce leaf seeds in toilet paper "tape." A guide on how to create this special treatment for your favorite plants can be found inside Lady Lee's Home.
Packing Peanut Filler
Packing peanuts make great potted plant filler for flowers. Now you can move those huge plants with ease and save money on soil. Check out the Reluctant Entertainer for more info on this project.
Upcycle That Toilet Paper Roll
Grow a few seedlings inside upcycled toilet paper rolls. Stephanie at Garden Therapy can show you how to plant your starter seeds using this very inexpensive container.
A Fort Made Of Forks
Keep rabbits and kitty cats out of your garden with this neat trick. Check out May Dreams Garden for more info on this over-the-top yet effective barrier against animal pests!
Build A Protective Wall
Stop invasive plants from taking over your garden! Cut a hole in the bottom of the cheap plastic container your new baby plant comes in, and bury it in the ground. The container forms a fantastic protective barrier, and also allows the plant to properly root itself in the soil.
Seed Planning Calendar
Plan your veggie garden ahead of time! The Home Farmer has a cute DIY calendar tutorial that will remind you when to plant those seeds.
Grow Roses In Potatoes
This one is certainly different - you can grow rose trimmings inside of a potato! DelMarVa Survival Training has a great tutorial on how to transform loose flower cuttings into a beautiful rose bush!
For The Unusually Clever Gardener
Try your hand at these clever ways to make gardening super fun! Whether you decide to upcycle toilet paper into seedling tape or make a monthly planting calendar, it will definitely be different from the "normal" way you're used to gardening.
