Get Rid of Slugs
Posted on 02.03.17 by thegardengossip @

The beer traps really good if you husband will spare you a beer for your garden :)You just have to make sure that you design it correctly. My first try…I attracted slugs but I didn’t trap them! AH!!

Make sure that the beer is around 5 inches deep and 1 inch below the top of the trap so that when the stupid slugs reach up to get out they fall in.

All Natural Fungal Remedy
Posted on 02.23.09 by thegardengossip @

If you are having a problem with your fungal sport plant disease such as powdery mildew – try mixing some baking soda with water and spraying it on the leaf surface…this ways it makes the fungal sports unable to actually infect the plant…therefor you don’t have the plant disease. Not to mention this is a lot healthier for the environment and a lot cheaper than all the other products that sometimes really don’t work! 1 tablespoon of baking soda , 1 teaspoon of dish soap, 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and 1 gallon of water. Make sure you test this on a small area – you don’t want to burn the plant if it is a sensitive plant!

Landscaping
Posted on 02.08.09 by thegardengossip @

I am always looking for great landscaping companys and sites. And sometimes by just going to great online galleries and viewing the photos of different landscapes it can inspire you enough to do something to your own yard. And the site All States Landscaping is great because they have great tools you can use where you can actually pick rocks and see what they would look like. Sometimes it is hard to just visualize what something will look like which is why the internet is just so cool because it can do so many things.

And this site has ideas and resources for Utah Landscaping as well as Utah Snow Plowing and Utah Retaining Walls to name a few. Personally, I nbeed a retaining wall because my land is just so weird that when it rains I actually lose land because it goes down hill on a ledge. And if you are in an area that requires snow plowing then this is a service that is well worth it. Once you have been “spoiled” by the luxuries of not having to go out and shovel the feet of snow out of your driveway you will never ever go back that is for sure 🙂

Block Your Weeds
Posted on 11.01.07 by thegardengossip @

Here is a great way to keep out the weeds. Do not get rid of that old shower curtain because you can put it right under the mulch so that you will not get those annoying weeds. They do sell products that you can put under your mulch but why waste you money when you can just use something that you already have. This will be sure to to stop any annoying weeds from popping through that mulch. This is just as easy to use as the products that you by at the gardening stores!

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.

When To Water Basics
Posted on 08.16.07 by thegardengossip @

When to water your plants…sounds rather simple yet sometimes over looked. The best time to water is early morning or early evening. Do not water during the heat of the day when the sun is at it’s strongest – you will burn the plants and it will evaporate before the plant can benefit form it. And do not water when it is windy because you have no control of where it is going 🙂

Get Rid Of Your Stumps
Posted on 05.12.07 by thegardengossip @

There is nothing worse than having that old tree stump slowly decaying in your yard. If you do not have the resources or extra money to get it removed here is a great tip to help speed up this process…
Drill some deem and big holes in the stump and close to the edge. Fill the holes with white sugar, molasses or buttermilk. Make sure it is wetted completely and cover it up with a foot layer of mulch.
