7 gardening hacks that you’ll find helpful
In this post, we’ll guide you through our 7 best gardening hacks to make your gardening jobs easier and more effective. Ice cream cones or eggshells for effective seeding For effective seeding, you don’t need to place your seeds in a large pot – only a small ice cream cone or eggshell will be good for the job. For the ice cream cone, all you need to do is stuff it with planting soil and plant your seed in it. The cone will allow for good drainage and act as a biodegradable material. So when your seed has sprouted, you just grab the cone and bury it on your garden or pots, and the cone will slowly decompose into organic materials, which are also beneficial for the soil. On the other hand, the eggshell will make a great supplement for calcium. Use your spoon to gently hit on the heads of your egg so that you can get the yolk and white out. The rest can be performed just like with the ice cream cone. Spoiled milk and soil for a quick boost in minerals If you have some spoiled milk standing around, don’t throw it away yet. You can make use of the nutrition in the milk and add it to your soil. But don’t pour it directly on your plants, since it’ll be too much. Instead, mix the milk with compost and apply to the soil for better results. This will add a lot of minerals to your plants, especially calcium, without having to invest in the best of products for fertilizing. Regrow your food scraps with a plastic egg container Little do we know, there are many types of food scraps that can be regrown instead of throwing them away. And no, there is no need for any advanced Amazon products to make it happen. All you’ll need is your average plastic egg container. Just cut the container open and put soil in each piece, and whenever you want to plant onions, carrots, or scallions, just plant their remaining roots inside. Give it a little water and your vegetables will soon grow back. Slather your fingers and nails with soap to prevent dirty nails while gardening We all know that gardening is not a clean job, and a lot of the time, you’ll end up having dirty nails. A simple trick to get away from this is to use your finger to scratch on a bar of soap a few times. This will cover the nails with soap and when you are planting, the soil won’t get stuck onto your fingers. You can also use wax as an effective alternative. Seal pruned branches with wax Another gardening hack with wax is for pruning. We all know that after you prune your branches, the wounds will take time to heal, and in the meantime, they’re quite vulnerable to pests. So a simple way to prevent this is to seal the pruned branches with wax. This will prevent infections and allow your plant to heal faster. Removing clay soil from roots Plants that were planted in clay soil tend to form a block of hard clay on their roots. This makes repotting quite challenging since it’s hard to get rid of the dirt without damaging the soil. A simple trick that you can use, which will work every time, is to dip the clay into water – it’ll break off quite easily. Test the viability of your seeds You don’t need the top reviewed products to test the viability of your seeds, since all you need is a bowl of water. Just put your seeds inside, and you’ll find that all the ones that float are not fit for planting.
