3 Life Hacks for Your Garden

December 21, 2019

Having a sustainable garden is what we should aim for. Growing our vegetables, becoming more aware of how we treat our plants, and embracing nature in the process is not easy. Here are some quick tips on what you should keep in mind for your sustainable garden.

A more sustainable garden with less waste 

Egg boxes as seed cups

Growing your culinary herbs or tomatoes is cheap and fun too. There is no need for expensive seedling breeding stations. Fill an empty egg box with growing soil and grow the seedlings in it. To put it in a larger flower pot, you can tear the egg box apart and plant the seedlings in the paper bowl in the large pot. The egg carton will disintegrate on its own within a few weeks.


Endless salad

The stalk remains with the salad. Instead of throwing it away, you can put it in a glass of water for 1-2 days and as soon as it takes root, plant it in a flowerpot on the balcony or in the garden. The upper part of the trunk should look out of the earth. Gradually, the lettuce leaves grow like this, and you can easily enjoy your organic salad.


Usury protection

Some herbs such as peppermint or lemon balm behave in a slightly overlapping manner with other herbs in the flower box and spread unchecked. To curb this a little, you can brake the plants underground by digging a halved plastic pot between the plants. So every plant stays on its side of the flower box, and less rabid plants have enough space to develop.
