Gardening tips

Watering: Early morning is always a good time to water but in really hot weather try watering in the evening as well, especially hanging baskets. It reduces the risk of burnt leaves.

Weed killer: Spray or pour on apple cider onto unwanted weeds and they will be done for the next day. Don’t get it near plants you don’t want dead. This is also safer for animals and children.

Weed killer (roll on): This is great for killing weeds without killing the surrounding plants and lawn. Just pop the ball out of a roll on deodorant bottle and wash it out. Then, put your weed killer in the bottle and replace the ball. Roll the ball over the weeds. Make sure you mark the bottle properly and keep away from children.

Slugs and snails: Tempt these pests away from plants with orange or grapefruit peel. Spray pots with WD40 as they don’t like crawling through it.
