Propagating a sucker into a plant of its own can be a little daunting (but it shouldn’t be, because it’s a cinch!)
With a mixed variety packet, I didn’t know which seeds would grow into which type of squash… which necessitated a bit of strategy.
When I see blooms, I like to help out the neighborhood bees and do a little bit of pollination by hand… you know, just to be sure.
In just a few weeks, my potato sprouts have filled the entire grow bag! I took photos every step of the way, and now… we wait.
5 steps to propagating strawberries. The process is surprisingly easy… I’m talking do-on-your-lunch-break-easy… I say that from experience because I literally accomplished it in the 20 minutes I have at home on my own lunch break.
I had convinced myself that summer squash (yellow squash & zucchini) would grow vertically if trained. It will not.
Even if you pair fresh herbs with everything you cook, you’ll likely still have some left over. Rather than let all your hard work go to waste, you can preserve your herbs to use all year long
The point of pruning is not to haphazardly hack off pieces of your plant. The goal is to encourage your plants to grow more and in a better shape.
Herbs are also great introduction into the world of backyard gardening. If you’re totally new, or don’t know where to start, I think herbs are a great first step. It’s easy to get carried away and buy every herb in sight. But, give a little bit of thought to the herbs you use most often, and then buy those.
There have been multiple drownings, repottings and bouts of fungus…But, I have excellent news.
