bonus video Life hacks for gardeners and summer residents:
Lifehack25. Lemon tree against mosquitoes
A lemon tree is a great way to protect your garden from mosquitoes. This tree is not only beautiful, but also has a bright aroma that repels insects. Having bought an adult plant, be sure to cut off the top leaves. A couple of sunny weeks by the window, and the tree can be safely transplanted to the site.
Lifehack26. Improvised means as top dressing
Fertilizing plants can be expensive, but there is a way to save on this expense. Use eggshells, coffee grounds, and brewed tea bags as natural food. These foods are rich in minerals and nutrients needed for plant growth. You can be sure: natural top dressing is no worse than the one sold in the store.
Life hack27. Vinegar against weed
Weeds can be a problem for any gardener. However, there is a way to get rid of them permanently. Mix vinegar (3.8 L), ½ cup table salt and a spoonful of dishwashing detergent. Spray the weeds with the resulting solution on a hot day and forget about them like a bad dream.
Life hack28. New life for old things
Old tools and things can come in handy on the farm. For example, a broken rake can be used as a gardening rack. After all, it is so convenient to store shovels and gloves in their cloves. Be creative and find new ways to use old things in your garden.
