Commonly used to tie up cables, I have a new found love for twistie ties. I can use them to tie anything and everything.
I used twistie ties to make my vertical garden on the balcony. I also used it to attach the netting to the frame on my rooftop “greenhouse”.
After watching all the you tube videos and reading all the how to articles, I have yet to encounter a gardener who has not used fertilizer. I was hoping I wouldn’t need to. But it seems if I want my plants to fruit, I’d have to feed it well.
They had other kinds, but being a beginner, I chose the general purpose fertilizer.
The instructions said to use half to 1 tsp for every liter. But I being the scaredy cat that I am, I only put half a tsp to 1.5 liters of water. And this I distributed among 14 pots.
After 2 weeks, when the plants are a bit older, I will use the right dilution.
I decided to get a pair of gloves. These are thick cloth gloves with rubberized paint on the palm. It’s multi purpose but i think it will do well for gardening. My main objective is to use the gloves when mixing soil. Although, lately, I find that I can touch the soil and potting mixes without it.
