I'd love to hear your garden tips that have made your garden bigger and better! My mother in law told me to put vinegar on thistles to kill them. I will try it and let you know how it works!

As for tried-and-true, I use strips cut from margarine containers for seedling markers and scrap boards for row markers.

My roses benefit from a little bonemeal mixed into the soil when planting.

I always clean up the garden in the fall to prevent blight and get rid of harbouring insect eggs - never disc it all under like my husband would like to!

We live in SE Sask. where the weather is VERY unpredictable. eg. the day before yesterday it was 25C and and yesterday the high was +10C and it rained all day. Rainfall is very unreliable and at times we have been not allowed to water gardens and lawns. so we started to practice xeriscape gardening. I no longer own a sprinkler hose and have much less work. If anyone is interested in this, e-mail me.
