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.
The late fall is the best time to take cuttings from your dormant deciduous trees and plants. Why? Since these trees tend to go dormant during the winter, it becomes less damaging to take cuttings from them. The best part is, cuttings are a cost-effective way to increase the number of plants in your garden. You can use them to propagate a number of new trees, crops, and flowers, including forsythia, figs, mulberries, pomegranates, grapes, kiwis, roses, and clematis. Whether you’re propagating cuttings to create a garden oasis on your own property or doing so for neighbors, friends, and family, it's important to know how to take cuttings from your trees and plants.
