You may have heard or read that milk is sometimes used to help grow tomatoes–and also squash. Is it a fertilizer? Milk contains calcium (Ca). Calcium is an important plant macronutrient.
List compiled by Australian Organic Gardening You can make your own organic bug spray from kitchen leftovers! Simply save your onion skins, peels and ends then refrigerate in an empty margarine-sized tub or ziplock bag until the container is full.

Jaime. Exactly. A woodstove or non-thermal-mass stove just has a vertical chimney.

By Heather Rhoades For gardeners growing an acid loving plant, like blue hydrangea or azalea, learning how to make soil acidic is important to its overall health. If you do not already live in an area where the soil is acidic, making soil acidic will involve adding products that lower the soil pH. Soil pH measures the alkalinity or acidity levels, which range from 0-14 on the pH scale.
Question: How Can I Make My Soil More Acidic? Answer: Some trees and shrubs require acidic soil pH (below 7.0) or they will develop iron chlorosis.
Γιατί είναι σημαντικό το pH του εδάφους; Η τιμή του pH του εδάφους είναι μία παράμετρος που θα πρέπει να λαμβάνουν σοβαρά υπόψη οι καλλιεργητές και οι κηπουροί. Είναι σημαντικό για την καλλιέργεια λαχανικών και φρούτων, αλλά και για τον κήπο με τα λουλούδια.
Watering is one of the most important factors when gardening; plants are made up of 95% water!
