You'll only want to take cuttings from trees and plants that are vigorous and healthy. The healthier your trees are, the better they’ll be able to handle your taking cuttings from them and the stronger the cuttings will be. Also, make sure the trees have gone dormant — that is, make sure you're doing this between early autumn and late winter and that all of the leaves have fallen from them.
Good sleep is crucial for both physical and psychological health and there are several reasons houseplants may improve sleep quality. The presence of plants in a room can cause us to relax. Some plants have special abilities to provide better sleep. A Sanseveria continues to release oxygen into a room during the night which most plants do not. An airborne antifungal and antibacterial compound called phytoncides is emitted by plants, and we benefit directly from this compound when we are near a plant. Close proximity to plants gives us constant exposure to Mother Nature's medicine cabinet.
A plant that is simply a lovely wildflower in one area of the world can be a devastating menace when relocated to an area where it is separated from its natural ecosystem. Purple loosestrife is just such a plant. While I can easily appreciate its beauty, I cannot ignore the fact that in the wrong location, this Beauty becomes a real Beast.
Weeds can become a problem in a pond run without chemical additives. They are easy to manually remove if you keep a pool net around and compost nicely in your bin or pile of organics. Invasive species may find the consistently moist region in and around a pond an attractive place to set up housekeeping but vigilant pulling and skimming will keep any problems down to a dull roar. Barley straw is effective in ponds that have been overrun with algae or neglected. It releases hydrogen peroxide, a natural substance, as it decays which kills off the algae. Leave it in the pond for a week or so and then skim it out to prevent excess silt as it composts.
