Clean Your Soiled Pots Without Water
Posted on 11.01.07 by thegardengossip @

Sometimes you need to clean out your flowerpots but you are just not near a water source. Not to mention that you really do not want to deal with the muddy mess anyways! So all you have to do is get a really stiff bristles brush and sprinkle some salt in the pot. Then just brush away all the dirt and grim. A little salt in the pot also will not do your flowers any harm either…if anything it will help them out. This is a very easy solution with very little clean up!

Flowers and Bleach
Posted on 11.01.07 by thegardengossip @

You probably wouldn’t think of this but bleach can help your flowers live longer! I love cut flowers but they just do not last long enough if you ask me…especially red roses! If you want them to last longer try this tip….at 1/4 teaspoon of bleach in a liter of water for your vase and throw in a few pinches of sugar. It will keep the water from getting cloudy and get ride of bacteria growth

The power flowers are amazing…from the beautiful aroma that can help people through aromatherapy to just the joy it is to get flowers. What is your favorite type of flower to get from someone? A flower can really cheer someone up…so if you know someone that needs that little pick me up…you may want to consider going to a florist and picking up one. You don’t need a $60 bouquet…it can be as simple as just a few flowers just put together. I know it always cheers me up!!

Keep Cut Flowers Fresh and Alive!
Posted on 09.21.07 by thegardengossip @

I love to get flowers. However, they just never last as long as you would like them to. You just can not really enjoy them for more than a week depending on what kind of flower they are. Here is a tip on how to keep them fresh for a few more days at least. When you put the water in the vase add 2 tsps. or sugar and 2 tsps. of apple cider vinegar. Be sure to cut the fresh flowers at an angle under warm water before you put them in the vase. It is as simple as that. So do not just shove your beautiful flowers in a vase of water anymore!

Dish Soap And Aphids
Posted on 09.01.07 by thegardengossip @

Dish soap will kill aphids even better that the insecticidal soaps however, it may harm your plants. Alwasy be sure to test a small area and only use 1-2 tablespoons of dish soap to a gallon of water and DO NOT use antibacterial soaps…they will hard your plants. Personally, I have had great luck with Equate.
