Gardening Tips (I)

Grow varieties of plants that require little or no staking
and plant closely so they support each other.

Spray weeds which are well established in a rock
garden and paving with a glyphosate herbicide. This
kills the entire plant without having to dig them out.

Mix perlite in with the potting compost in patio
planters and hanging baskets. It absorbs moisture
when water is plentiful and releases it when the
compost is dry.
