<ol><li> 1. Make The Most Of Your Garden With The Following Tips Gardening is a fun and interesting hobby that has the potential to improve the life of you, your family, or your business. You can determine what you need, so that you don't waste time and money on equipment you don't need, or the wrong kinds of seeds. Make garden tools do double duty as handy makeshift rulers. Tools with long handles such as hoes and rakes can double as measuring sticks. After laying the handles on the floor, run the measuring tape along beside them. A permanent marker can be used to label distances. You will never find yourself looking for a ruler thanks to this simple tip. There are home solutions available to combat the powdery mildew you may find on your plants. Mix a little liquid soap and baking soda in water. Once every week, you should spray the mixture on your plants; the mildew will disappear shortly thereafter. This solution is perfectly safe for your plants and gently treats mildew in a short amount of time. If you would like to have flowers in your garden that last through the spring and summer seasons, plant bulbs. Bulbs are usually very hearty and very easy to grow, and bulbs will grow year after year. Include a variety of plantings to get a full season of flowers, from early bloomers to late-season varieties. As fall arrives, it is the time to prepare for planting fall edibles. Try something different by planing kale or lettuce inside a pumpkin, instead of using the planter pots you traditionally use. To use the pumpkin as a planter, it is important to prevent it from rotting. To do this, you simply spray the entire inside and any edges with a gardening spray called Wilt-Pruf. This is done after you've opened the pumpkin at the top and removed the insides. After that, your pumpkin planter is ready to use! Are you one of the millions who loves some fresh mint leaves, yet you absolutely hate the way they tend to take over any garden they are planted within? Instead of planting mint in the ground, confine it to a large pot. If you would like, go ahead and plant the container and the plant right in the ground to prevent root overtake. You will need the correct information, lots of patience, and the ability to spend time working outside. But soon you will see the work begin to pay off, as the garden begins to grow. </li></ol>
