Question: I was told that before planting garlic to put the cloves in a solution of baking soda and liquid seaweed to prevent the garlic plants from getting a fungus. I was given fish fertilizer and told that it will do the same thing. Is this true? Karen Davis
Fish and seaweed fertilizers contain a wealth of nutrients, essential for plant growth and health. That’s probably the trick to this tip.
Use these fertilizers once a month, in addition to your regular fertilizer program. It will result in healthier plants, that are better able to fight off plant disease.

i got some For Get Me Not seeds and wonder how to plant them. do i just sprinkle them on the dirt or how deep do they go. planting them indoor
Forget-me-nots can be started indoors or out. Now is the perfect time.
Sprinkle the seeds on the soil. Then, barely cover them with soil or seed starter mix. Water lightly. Then, keep the soil moist, not wet.
Thank you for your help.
I started some pear trees from seed. They have grown to about 10 inches tall but the stems are small and weak, they can not stand on their own, otherwise the blooms are very green and healthy looking. I have to prop them up and tie them loosely to keep them up. Any suggestions out there? What am I doing wrong?
Any plant that is tall, thin and spindly is not getting enough sunlight. Your pear seedlings need full sunlight all day long to thrive. A trick to help thicken the stems of plants, is to fan them. It encourages the plant to focus on stem development.
