11 Nifty Ideas For The Garden
Looking for a creative idea or two for the garden? Here’s an assorted bunch of tips and projects, many of these have been featured previously on Tipnut and moved here for one handy project sheet (and I’ll be adding more goodies to this page over time). Enjoy!
Make A Living Wreath: Marrying two popular passions, container gardening and wreath making, living wreaths offer an opportunity to arrange and show off flowers and trailing foliage.
Moss Starter Recipes: Terra cotta, stone, and concrete containers and sculptures all lend themselves nicely to having moss grown on them, giving each one an antique look. Also see this Quick Moss Starter.
Self-Contained System: Perfect for apartment dwellers or those who don’t have time to manage a full-sized garden yet wish to enjoy growing some of their favorite herbs and vegetables.
No Dig Method: The idea is to make a foundation of compost/mulch then only use soil where you plant (make a hole in the mulch, stick a handful or two of dirt inside then plant the seedling).
One Pot Vegetables: Not a lot of space or new to gardening and want to start small? Here’s an idea for you.
