Life hack5: Soda as top dressing for tomatoes
Experts advise using baking soda as a top dressing for tomatoes to reduce the acid content and make them less tart.
Lifehack 6: Pine needles and mushroom compost for hydrangeas
The color of hydrangeas can change depending on the pH level of the soil. Adding pine needles and mushroom compost can change the pH of the soil, which in turn will change the color of the hydrangea flowers. Coffee also increases soil acidity and can turn hydrangeas blue.
Life hack7: Nettles can be used as fertilizer
Cut the nettle, fill it with water and leave to infuse for several days. You can then use this liquid for watering plants after diluting it in a ratio of 20:1. Nettles are an excellent source of nitrogen for leafy plants and vegetables such as kale and broccoli. You can also use water after cooking rice to water plants.
Life hack 8: Mustard against bugs and insects
Mustard is a great solution for controlling the Colorado potato beetle. To do this, you need to take a pack of dry mustard and dilute it in a bucket of water, adding 100 milliliters of vinegar. Spray the tops of potatoes with the resulting solution, and you will no longer worry about bugs. This is a simple and effective remedy that will help you protect your plants from pests.
In addition, it is worth noting that these tips are based on experience and experimentation, but you should consult with experienced gardeners and plant care specialists before using them in practice.
