Microgreens are a nutrient dense, easy-to-grow solution to your winter gardening blues. Learn how to grow your own microgreens in a few simple steps. I recently discovered microgreens at the farmer's market and fell in love. They were packed with flavor, tender, and looked beautiful on my plate. I even found myself snacking on them right out of the bag.
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.
The ability of plants to make us feel good appears instinctive. We surround ourselves with plants during weddings and other celebrations as well as in sorrowful times like funerals. We set aside green spaces for parks and community gardens. Numerous studies have shown that people who grow houseplants are more satisfied with life than those who don't. Plants cause the brain to produce more serotonin which boosts mood. Houseplants improve concentration, memory, reaction time, and creativity. Experimental studies have shown that cognitive performance improves in offices with plants and that merely seeing the plants boosts creativity.
Cover crops often improve the fertility of the soil they're planted in, because they return essential nutrients to it. Planting them annually will definitely reduce the amount of natural amendments, compost, and manure you have to add to your soil. Note that the type of cover crop you choose to cultivate can also determine which nutrients are put into the ground. For example, planting a legume cover crop will add some nitrogen back into the dirt.
