- Spray Paint your garden tools’ handles a neon color. That way, if you forget to pick them up or drop them along the way, when you look out over the garden you will easily spot and them. This will help you make sure they’re not left out to rust, which can save you the money you might otherwise spend having to buy new ones.
- Here’s a great tip for that old golf bag you were going to toss in the garbage. Why not use it to store all your gardening tools like hoes, rakes, brooms, etc. Not only will this keep them neat and tidy but the golf bag makes it handy to carry around with you.
- Many of us know to put coffee grounds on our plants but do you know, I put my old brewed coffee on plants as well. I swear by it!
I’ve never tried this since I don’t drink coffee but I hear it works well.
(From Mike: Just make sure it’s black coffee! I used to work in an office with a lady who dumped her coffee on her plant at the end of the day. One day, everyone in the office noticed a terrible smell that persisted for days after that. Finally, we went searching for the cause of the smell and found out that the creamer from her coffee had spoiled in the plant pot! We learned a big lesson that day!
