Household Products to Make Your Gardening Easier

24th January 2022
"There are several household things strewn around the normal home that may easily be utilized to improve your garden."

There are several household things strewn around the normal home that may easily be utilized to improve your garden, particularly when attempting to promote plant growth.

Here are a few of them:

Banana Peels

Banana Peels

It is well known that bananas are high in potassium. The high potassium content is beneficial to the garden. Tossing your leftover banana peel onto your garden can provide your plants with much-needed potassium.

This boost will assist the plants in becoming stronger and healthier, resulting in better pest resistance.

However, be certain that the banana peels do not come into contact with the surface, since this may attract harmful bugs.



Coffee, a common household ingredient, is a great plant fertilizer. However, this is only true if the grinds themselves still contain caffeine, which depends on how you create your coffee.

However, it is critical to verify that the coffee is dry before putting it in the plants. This is because damp coffee is extremely likely to encourage the growth of fungus, which can eventually kill your plants.

Potato Water

Potato water

Some people are surprised to learn that the water used to cook potatoes may also be used to water plants, as long as no salt is added.

This is because of the presence of potassium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus in potatoes. As a result, when you use the water used to boil the potatoes to water your plants, you are giving your plants trace amounts of these components.

Things to prepare while starting roof-top gardening

1st December 2020
"Transform your roof into a beautiful garden."

Owning a beautiful garden is the dream of many; but if you live in city areas, you may feel a lack of proper space. But, let me remind you, to start gardening, you don't need a huge field or ground. You can simply plant some beautiful flowers in a pot and either places them on your balcony, or roof-top, or even hang them in your windows.

If you have a roof or access to a roof, then with proper methods and steps, you can start roof-top gardening pretty easily. You just need the following things to start gardening. 



First and foremost, you need to have access to the roof. You must either own one or get permission to start gardening in one. So, if you don't own the house, then get permission from the landlord about the access to the rooftop and then, begin your gardening


The second most essentials are soil. It's obvious that plant needs soil but the kind of soil and its moisture and fertility matters the most. So, make sure to get yourself fertile soil. As you are planning roof-top gardening, the soil doesn't get many minerals as it gets from the earth. So, make sure to add fertilizers timely to ensure their fertility. 

Pots and containers

Before purchasing pots and containers, ensure what kinds of plants you are planning to grow and in what way. This will help you evaluate the length and width of the pots. Terra cotta is used by many experts but they tend to dry faster. Thereupon, if possible, try to get yourself a customized pot or container. 


Your plant needs to drain out some water but some containers do not have holes to drain the water. So, make sure to leave an opening at the bottom of your pot to ensure proper water drainage. 

Ensure a water source

Your plants require persistent attention and care unless they're low maintenance plants. So, it is to ensure a water source. It's best if you can set an automatic water source which will feed your plants even when you get too busy with work. 


Now, the most essential and core part of gardening- plants. After preparing other essentials, you need to select the type of plant you want to grow and nourish in your roof-top garden. You can either grow vegetables. Or you can also go with perennial plants- they require deep pots for their roots to grow but will make your rooftop greeny and beautiful. Also, if you want a flower garden, then you can easily choose the flowers you like and grow a beautiful little roof-top garden for yourself.

Gardening Hacks Everyone Should Know

"Gardening is a tricky task, and doing it properly is typically a matter of trial and error. If you enjoy gardening, you will enjoy all of these different hacks."

Gardening is a tricky task, and doing it properly is typically a matter of trial and error.

If you enjoy gardening, you will enjoy all of these different hacks.

Soak your seeds in warm water for at least 24 hours before planting

If you're planting seeds, soak them in warm water for 24 hours before planting. For some species, it is a process of dividing root formation. Because all seeds must absorb water before germination, soaking them will enhance the germination process in many plants.

Furthermore, not all seeds must be soaked. Soaking large, hard seeds aids in the breakdown of their outer covering (particularly for Sweet Peas), while smaller seeds do not require soaking.

Lay nappies in your flower-pots

Using a (clean) diaper is a brilliant method to keep the soil moist for days. The granules used in diapers absorb a considerable quantity of water and will release it to the pot or hanging basket as needed by the plants.

This is a great hack to water your plants when you’re out of the house.

Eggshells for a calcium boost

All plants, like people, require calcium for new development. Calcium is essential for plant development and processes, as well as for reducing the danger of plant disease. Feed your plants eggshells to give them a calcium boost.

Furthermore, powdered eggshell is useful for this, but it should be mixed in with potting compost before planting.

Make your own compost

Making your own compost is less difficult than you would imagine. Place a large container or pile at the back of your garden with various layers of soft organic waste, such as prunings and grass trimmings.

Food waste also works well - raw vegetable scraps, eggshells, coffee granules, tea bags, and even pet fur, simply place it all in a compost heap and add grass clippings and any annual crops. If you give the heap a nice mix every few weeks, you will have some quality compost in 12-18 months.
