Although I mostly write about gardening, from time to time I like to touch on other yard-related activities… Including the lawn.

For some, the lawn is a staple of the yard, and proper lawn care is something to be sought after. When thinking of lawn care, fertilizing, mowing, and edging come to mind. But aeration? Dethatching?

These are less common practices that are absolutely vital to proper lawn care.

CFL Grow Lights: The Ultimate Guide
08:52

When I first started growing plants indoors and in hydroponic systems, I had no clue what I was doing.

There are a lot of concepts to learn as a beginner to hydroponics, but lighting is by far the most complex.  There are so many different types of indoor grow lights, let alone learning about the properties of light itself and how plants use it to grow.​

I decided to start with the cheapest, most basic types of light out there: compact fluorescent bulbs, or CFLs.​  They’re a great starting light for beginners because they’re cheap, easy to find, and do a damn good job of growing many different types of plants.

Ground Cover Plants As Lawn Replacements & Borders
07:07

Are you looking for ground cover plants? Because oh, are there a huge number of these plants available. They range in size from only an inch or two to nearly a foot tall. Some creep steadily along the ground, where others grow up, flop over, and then trail out.

If you’re concerned about soil erosion, or sick of your lawn, ground cover plants are for you. Landscaping professionals love them as they can be used to create curves of color. They can grow around the bases of shrubs or bushes in the yard. And they’ll even look good right at the root area of your ornate fruit trees.

So let’s go over some information about how best to utilize ground cover plants in your yard. We’ll explore a few popular ones for each of multiple categories. Then all that you’ll need to do is to start seeds and get to planting!

 Do you like to make your indoor space look like a veritable jungle? If so, you’ll need to grow monstera deliciosa. This giant-leaved climbing plant can really liven up your living room.

Indoor specimens often grow to 4-5 feet in height. Those which grow in their native rainforest environments can often get to ten feet or more!

These plants themselves aren’t edible, and in fact they’re poisonous. But they produce a fruit called the monster fruit which is edible when ripe. Don’t bite into an unripe one, though! These fruits are full of oxalic acid when unripe and can irritate your throat!

With a scientific name that literally means “delicious monster”, you can’t go wrong. This unusual plant will bring lots of tropical color to your living space!

We’ve all heard the horror stories about beets staining things, and they’re true. Red beets have long been used as a form of dye. But not all beets have the classic red-purple coloring, and many are stain-free!

Growing "Bachelor Buttons"
07:36

One of my favorite flowers, bachelor buttons are sometimes called cornflowers. And it’s from there that the color “cornflower blue” derives its name!

Also called basket flowers, blue bonnets, blue cap and many other names, this popular plant is a hardy annual. It blooms from spring through the fall months in an array of color. Leave some of the spent flowers on the plant, and it’ll happily reseed its bed and grow again next year.

But what are bachelor’s buttons, and are they all blue? Do they prefer sunlight or shade? How much water do they need? We’ll cover all this and more today as we explore the world of the bachelor’s button!

Growing "Jacob's Ladder" Plant
05:48

Once upon a time, the Jacob’s ladder plant was called the “charity plant”, although it shouldn’t be confused with the Mahonia species that also bears that common name. It’s also been called “Greek valerian”, although it’s not a valerian. Confused yet?

You shouldn’t be. Jacob’s ladder gets its common name from the ladder-like or pinnate structure of its leafy foliage. And in the spring and early summer months, it shoots up slender stalks from which hang clusters of bell-like flowers.

A shade-loving variety, it has origins overseas, but is often found in the United States in garden cultivation now. It’s such an easy-growing plant that it can even be considered slightly invasive if it’s in the right environment! However, it can be maintained and kept to its beds as well.

Let’s delve deep into the world of the Polemonium species, and I’ll tell you all about this beautiful perennial!

Wiping Your Wasp Woes Away
07:43

 Have wasps decided that the eaves of your house look like a fantastic place to move in? I know I’ve had troubles with them here in California well into the fall, although they’re at their most active in the summer. Eventually, you sigh and start shopping for the best wasp trap.

But do you really need a trap, and if so, what kind do you want? Are lures necessary, and if so which ones? Are those internet stories about dryer sheets and paper bags real, and if so, does it actually work? Should you buy a commercial-made trap or make one?

I’m going to walk you step by step through deciding if this is something you should be investing in, teach you all about how they function, and answer questions about home methods. When you’re done reading, you’ll be ready to deal with them no matter what!

How to Grow Lettuce Microgreens Fast and Easy
06:47

 There’s nothing better than having access to fresh, nutrient-dense salad greens that practically grow themselves, right?

I can already hear you saying, “Yeah, that’d be nice, if they existed…”

Well, they do, and they’re called microgreens.

Practically any plant can be grown as a microgreens, which is just the even-younger cousin of baby greens. Typically harvested around 8-20 days after planting, microgreens are the quickest turnaround crop you’ll ever grow in your garden.

Today, we’ll be growing lettuce or salad mix microgreens, which I consider one of the most basic types of microgreens you can grow, making them perfect for a beginner.
