Get Rid of Ants: Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!
Growing Rose From Cutting. Simply plunge the cuttings of roses into the ground. The secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, push the bottom end into a small potato, which keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots.
Instant Planting Grid: Attach short pieces of hose/plastic tubing to metal rake, counting tines so that hoses are spaced equally. Dragging rake across prepared soil, creates instant planting grid/row markers.
Make Potted Plants less messy. Line Flowerpots and planters with coffee filters to stop soil from falling through the drainage hole. Reuse coffee filters for this one, plus compost the grinds in your garden!
