If you’ve ever imagined yourself having a delightful time in your own garden, taking care of plants that grow happily with their bright green colors, then chances are you have a green thumb. If you want to look for more productive ways to help your plants grow, you might want to start investing in green garbage. If the concept is new to you, fret note as this guide will help you out with your worries. Remember, when it comes to gardening, garden recycle can actually work in your favor. Here’s how to make use of green garbage to make plants grow.
If you’re into gardening – or if you plan on getting into gardening – then you’re about to tap into quite a growing (no pun intended) industry. In fact, in the United States alone, 42-million homes or 35-percent of all households in the entire country grow their own food in their own garden. This trend has been increasing among younger households, and at least 2-million more households get into the home gardening trend almost every year. As such, getting into gardening isn’t exactly a “hip” thing, and green garbage can definitely help enhance the experience for you. Here’s how:
- Eggshells: If you have crushed eggshells around the kitchen, did you know you can actually recycle them? That’s right, your eggshells from making burritos or scrambled eggs can actually be used in green garden. Just wash the eggshells well and dry them in an open container and then crush them into fine powder before applying to container and garden plants. Eggshells are made out of mostly calcium carbonate, which can help promote cell wall growth in plants.
- Banana peels: If you’ve ever heard of how banana peels can work wonders in the kitchen or even in skincare, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise to hear they can be used in garden recycling as well. Rose growers can actually use banana peels in helping rose bushes get protected from diseases, especially since banana peels are rich in potassium. Sulfur, magnesium, calcium, and potassium in peels can also help plants grow much faster.
- Coffee grounds and tea leaves: Tea leaves and coffee grounds can actually be used to promote the fertility of garden soil and improve a plant’s overall health thanks to their nitrogen content. If you have bulk tea or tea bag residue, you may actually place them around the plant to promote growth. Be sure to add a little first to “test the growth,” and if you think there’s a significant change in growth, you can apply mre in order to use the grounds’ and leaves’ maximum potential.
- Paper towel rolls: That’s right, paper towels can actually help plants grow. If you have new seedlings, it can help to trim paper towel rolls and place them around the soil of seedlings to protect them from pests.
- Nut shells: A lot of nut shells such as sunflowers, pistachios, and peanuts can help aerate soil and improve their ability to sustain plant life. Before you apply them, though, be sure to wash them off of any seasonings first.
- Hollowed citrus shells: You can use squeezed or hollowed citrus fruits upside-down to attract slugs and snails away from your plants. This allows you to provide an added layer of protection to your plants.
- Hot peppers: In speaking of plant protection, hot pepper tops and seeds actually can help protect your home from pests. Blend the waste and mix with water after straining. You can use the mix to spray pests away from plants.
The Takeaway: Newer Methods To Plant Everyday
If there’s anything to take away from the above, it’s that even the waste from our gardening efforts can actually be used to improve the plants we’ve been growing in our gardens. You can use the tips above to help make your gardening experience much more worthwhile, and potentially even save money as you wouldn’t have to buy as much fertilizer, compost, and other enhancers anymore.
