My experiments with gardening

Trying to grow a garden and get rid of the tag 'plant killer'

Solution for overwaterers! December 1, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — SDJ @ 4:47 pm

Overwaterers! As if it is a word.. It is, if you are a gardener and killed plants due to overwatering. There is hope for you!

Found a website called “Urban leaves”. It is basically an initiative towards community gardening and they do really good stuff. They have given many tips and tricks for beginners. I liked their idea about recycling plastic bottles as a container for plants..check this link. The coir rope or nadi helps to maintain moisture at the optimum level in a plant.

I have tried to do the same and have 2 plants in plastic bottle containers. One mint cutting and one thyme sapling. I really hope this mint generates roots and the thyme survives..I got it from a nursery and it is half dried up which I take it as half-dead due to my “killing” ability.. I really hope it lives.

I read somewhere that talking to your plants helps. I know.. this will be last step..once it is taken my husband will brand me as a lost cause and take me to a hospital. Prince Charles is rumoured to do this.

Planted 2 cherry tomato seeds today. Will update if I succeed.
