    I just bought a bunch of cucumber seeds, just out of fun ! I started germinating the seeds using the wet tissue paper and plastic bags method, they grew just fine ( I don't have a germination system, I just kept them in a dark area and they did just fine) .. When the roots started growing bigger and stronger I transplanted them into containers, I kept the soil semi wet, made sure its not over wet. Watched some youtube videos to learn more on how to plant them properly. Few days later, I noticed that only 2 out of maybe 10 germinated seeds started growing leaves ! What did I do wrong there? I know I don't have a green house and some lights to keep everything warm and nice, can I still grow my other cucumber seeds without using all of that fancy stuff? Here is a picture of my germinated seeds! do I need to let them grow bigger before I transplant them?

  • How can I keep animals from digging through my compost pile naturally?

    Without adding deterrent chemicals to it that might harm the surrounding tree roots or render the compost useless. No matter how much dirt or sand I cover it up with, animals always find a way to get to it and end up scattering it all over the place, some of it even ends up on the neighbors property and the... show more
    Without adding deterrent chemicals to it that might harm the surrounding tree roots or render the compost useless. No matter how much dirt or sand I cover it up with, animals always find a way to get to it and end up scattering it all over the place, some of it even ends up on the neighbors property and the street. I am looking for an additive that's a natural organic animal deterrent, which won't kill surrounding trees or render the compost useless.

  • What can I do in spring to help the bees in my garden?

    We just moved into our first family home and the garden is in poor condition. I want to put some pots out (lots) with flowers and things that are good for helping the wild bees. What type of things give maximum impact for bees that are long lasting and will survive more than one summer? I am terrified of bees.

  • How do you "hill" potatoes?

    1. What's the best thing to use to form the hill? I've used peat moss but it tends to blow away. 2. Should I cut off the lower leafs before hilling? 3.

    Ok, so my family and I recently moved into a house in Florida. The previous owners had planted some kinda bush, but were not exactly sure what it is. My uncle claimed that he became itchy after touching said plant, when trying to move some things around in the yard. I’ll try to add a picture of the plant if I can. But it has leaves that reminds me of some type of poison plant, but at the same time this bush gets bright pink blossoms on it, because they were bloomed when we arrived.

  • Is it legal to urinate in my lawn?

    Rather than flushing away nutrients, I'd rather pop a squat in my lawn. However, I'm worried that my neighbours may complain. Is it legal, since it's my property?

I am just curious as to why it would make any difference what the temperature is outside when you put them there. If they fall off the original plant and land on the ground Next spring when it gets warm enough they start to grow. What difference would it make if I put them in the ground and it’s only 50° out. would they not just wait until it got warm enough to start growing. Just kind of a curious question.

    Best answer: No, absolutely not! Not only is dog poo full of harmful bacteria and parasites, but any carnivore poo is too strong to use on plants.

    Best answer: No, absolutely not!
    Not only is dog poo full of harmful bacteria and parasites, but any carnivore poo is too strong to use on plants. The concentrations of certain compounds will burn the roots and kill the plant.
    You need herbivore poo (horse and cow are the most commonly used), and it needs to be well-rotted, as this both kills bacteria and lowers nutrient levels to a safe level (when fresh, it is too strong and will burn the plants).
    Poultry manure is good, too, but it is best to buy this in pelleted form, rather than procuring your own. Poultry manure is full of very harmful bacteria, but the stuff you buy has been heat-treated to sterilise it.

    Best answer: Prune overgrown azaleas as early as possible. According to the Azalea Society of America, the optimal pruning time is before the plant starts growing for the season, usually in early spring. The next best time is while the shrub is blooming. Although the timing means that you will have fewer flowers this season, early pruning offers plenty of time for the shrub to fill out and develop new growth.
