Here are some expert suggested gardening hacks

Plants are stress-buster. Aren't they? These green little blessings are what you need to brighten your day after a hectic schedule. Having your own garden is nothing less than a boon. All gardeners must follow important steps, ranging from keeping the pests away to choosing the suitable soil, in order to have a healthy garden.

Here are some expert suggested gardening hacks.

Use coffee grounds to keep your plants safe from pests

Pests are the nightmare of every gardener as they damage the soil and the plants too. The most effective and efficient method of keeping your garden safe is placing coffee grounds around all the corners, as slugs and snails dislike caffeine, which makes them avoid soil with a high caffeine content. This method helps you to keep your garden safe and healthy.

Use cinnamon powder on seedlings to prevent diseases

Cinnamon has some anti-fungal qualities, and as a bonus, it smells great too. You can sprinkle cinnamon powder onto the surface of the soil. Use it to prevent and stop diseases on seedlings and it will help in keeping your plants free from diseases. One of the major precautions you have to take while doing this is choosing the right cinnamon.

Keep Plants watered for days while you holiday

Keep your garden healthy by placing self-watering bottles inside pots so that your plants get the required water accordingly in your absence.

Use diapers to improve the moisture-retaining ability

Using diapers can help plant to retain moisture for a longer time. This hack is more useful for vertical gardening, hanging baskets in living rooms, shallow pots, and especially if you live in a really warm climate

Choose your own soil

Good soil is an essential part of a good garden. You can check the quality of the soil at home using simple steps. If adding vinegar to the soil produces bubbles, it signifies that the soil is alkaline. To check the presence of acid in your garden soil, you can use baking soda. If bubbles are produced once your soil and baking soda come in contact, it signifies the presence of acidic substances.
