Want to bring in interest, color and something that will actually work for you? Put a mailbox in your garden:
Looks so great and can also hold your gloves, clippers and all of your small gardening tools:
Your tools will be protected AND you will be able to find when you need them!
So pretty and unique!
Here are a few more of my favorite gardening hints & tips I have picked up along the way:
* Easy Read Rain Gauge
Add a few drops of food coloring to the bottom of your rain gauge. Next time it rains it will be easy to read when mixed with the bright coloring:
* Line Pots with Coffee Filters
This is a great idea for inside plants also! Line the bottom of your flower pots with a coffee filter. The filter will allow water to drain out and keep the messy dirt inside the pot.
* Create a no-stick shovel
Spray your favorite shovel and garden tools with a silicone or Teflon lubricant so that the dirt slides right off. My husband sprays his weed-wacker string with spray butter or WD40 when installing string. He says it works like a dream!
* Easy Natural Garden Markers
To create perfectly natural markers, write the names of plants (using a permanent marker) on the flat faces of stones of various sizes and place them at or near the base of your plants. Simple!
* The vast majority of garden plants like sun and well-drained soil.
The golden rule of gardening. That’s it!
Hope you enjoyed! Have a great week everyone!
