I plant marigolds and basil around my garden. To prevent pests and insects I also use the cat/dog hair from sweeping in our house around the garden as well to repel small animals like rabbits.

I use Epsom salts,which not only are they great for us gardeners after playing in the dirt all day!I use them for my roses and my tomatoes to ripen. The salts supply magnesium and for calcium I add crushed up tums, all heavy Feeders need minerials and compost.(lightly raked in around them) I also use lots of herbs around and in the gardens. We all need Friends!

I’m growing spinach and lettuce indoors using 3 hydroponic systems I built. My tip to hydroponic growers of non-fruiting plants like spinach and lettuce is to feed 1/3 of the recommended level that’s on the nutrient solution’s bottles. Feed less until your plants ask for more, otherwise you risk burning and killing them.

The bottles often provide recommended feeding levels that reflect the needs of fruiting plants like tomatoes. Giving them that much food will kill them.

I have a collection of small Cacti and succulents that I keep in a sunny window . Every morning before I give the dog fresh water I empty the dogs water bowl into the plants . The dog gets fresh water and my plants are watered . because Cacti do not require much water each plant only gets a few drops . My grand daughter loves to go to the greenhouse with me to pick out new and unusual plants . We read that cacti keep intruders away .

My mom is a whiz at keeping orchids. She either has them in suspended little pots or attached to a small tree we have in the yard. She waters them regularly and hangs a fine net over them to keep critters away.
