Gardening is a pleasant activity for many people. Certainly, not everyone has a green thumb – but does that really exist anyway? Anywho, gardening doesn’t require much equipment. There are everyday items that could really change and / or simplify the way you work around the garden. So, if the thought of gardening is draining your energy, know there are some ways to indulge in the pleasures of gardening that are unorthodox, but useful. Here are some of the most interesting and unusual gardening tips found on the internet!
1. Use an ice cream cone to plant your seeds
- Have an ice cream cone.
- Fill it with soil.
- Put a seed in it and water it.
- Once your seed has grown a little, plant your ice cream cone in a pot with soil outside.
2. Ice cream cones are biodegradable
Isn’t that great?
3. Grow your green onions at home
Take the lower part of the green onion (the white part), a plastic egg carton and a knife with a retractable blade.
4. Make a hole in your egg carton with your retractable knife
Place your green onions in the holes and fill the bottom of your carton with eggs and water.
5. Put your onions in the sun
Wait until your green onions grow and add them to your favorite recipes!
6. Is your plant about to die?
- Put on a pair of gloves, then place rusty nails in a water bottle.
- Close the water bottle, shake it and make holes in its lid.
- Water your plant with water. The iron in the rust will oxygenate your plant, which will help it get back on its feet!
7. Is your soil dry?
Burn a nail with a lighter and make holes on both sides with the nail.
8. Put half of your bottle in the ground to irrigate the soil properly
9. Don’t throw away your curdled milk!
- Pour it into a bowl.
- Add soil to it.
- Mix it all together and add this mixture to the soil of your plants. The calcium in milk helps to fertilize your plants’ soil in a natural way.
10. You’ve been gardening and your nails are full of dirt?
Take a bar soap, run your nails over its surface and rinse your hands under water.
