So we have put together ten hacks to help you look after your garden during these testing times. And, even if you don’t have a garden a lot of these will work on potted plants.
5. Make your own fertiliser
Grow Veg said you can make fertiliser by blending eggshells, banana skins and coffee grounds. "This kitchen-created fertiliser is full of nutrients – ideal for use around hungry feeders such as squashes, tomatoes and climbing beans."
6. Make crops from your off cuts
One Little Project said: "Fresh basil, celery and onions can all be started from cuttings you’d normally throw away. Set them in some water and they’ll start to grow all over again."
7. Put cinnamon on your seedlings
Apartment Therapy said: "Many seedlings die due to fungal diseases, or “damping off.” The antifungal properties of cinnamon can help keep those problems at bay."
8. Soak your seeds
Gardening Know How have suggested soaking seeds for 12 to 24 hours before planting them. "The benefit of soaking seeds before planting is that your germination time will be reduced, which means you can have happy, growing plants faster."
