5 Simple Garden Hacks:

1. Eggshells

Eggshells are a perfect fertilizer for plants. Instead of throwing them away, you can crush them and sprinkle it around the plant you want to fertilize or mix it with your planting soil. This one is a very easy and inexpensive garden hack that everyone can try.


2. Wine Bottles

Empty wine bottles can be used as garden edging, border or short fence. All you need are empty wine bottles. Again, instead of throwing empty wine bottles, all you have to do is get rid of the wine label (or not if you prefer it that way), then bury the bottle (upside down) halfway in the ground (or depends on how low or high you want your edging or border to be).

3. Baking Soda

The ever useful baking soda. This one is a simple garden hack. If you want sweeter tomatoes, all you have to do is to sprinkle some baking soda around your tomato plant. Once you harvest your tomatoes, you’ll notice that they are sweeter. It doesn’t hurt to try this, since baking soda is inexpensive.

4. Coffee Filters

Another simple hack. If your pots have really big holes or if you keep on losing soil in your pots, this hack is perfect for you. Before filling your pot with soil, lay a coffee filter inside the pot. Once the coffee filter is in the pot, you can start filling it up with potting soil.

5. Plastic Forks

You can stick some plastic forks around or beside your plants if you don’t want your pets or some creatures to destroy them. The plastic forks will provide a simple nudge to your pets or animals to prevent them from creating further damage on your plants, flower bed or vegetable garden.
