In some cases, a lawn can try to take over your garden beds, sidewalk, or driveway. That’s where a good edger will come in handy. You can use either edging shears or an edging iron. These tools will help you cut the grass along the edges of your sidewalks, driveways, and garden beds for a crisp look. They work like scissors or a knife to cut through the grass, allowing you to remove the excess grass and reveal the lines that were hidden underneath it.
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.
Keep your micro garden location in mind as you select your container. If you plan on growing in a windowsill, choose a container that fits in your windowsill. If you have grow lights, make sure your container is appropriately sized. You want your microgreens to have equal exposure to light.
Cover crops can also help break up your soil if it’s compacted or heavy. The put organic materials into the ground and help loosen it all up. Plus, cover crops often have roots that go really deep, so they'll probably do a better job of loosening the earth than you would with a rototiller. Long roots will also help the microbial organisms living deep down in the soil thrive.
