April is Garden Month!

Posted on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012 at 10:58 AM

Did you know that? I just found out today and since it's the beginning of April still, we have a couple relevant tips to share with you!

When I think of what can go wrong with gardening, my mind automatically goes to weeds. Luckily, there's a really simple solution for killing them and making sure your garden stays weed-free. All you need are the following common household ingredients:


1 Quart of warm tap water

1 Ounce of baby shampoo

1 Ounce of white vinegar

3/4 Shot of gin

1 Preval Sprayer


All you have to do is mix all of the above ingredients, put them in the Preval Sprayer and spray the weeds with a stream (as opposed to a fine spray). Soon, they will dry out and you'll have one less thing to worry about in your garden!

I want to leave you with this quote that I stumbled upon today about gardening:

"April is a month for gardening – Garden Month encourages for planting, growing, and spending time creating a beautiful, healthy and productive environment. Gardening and growing plants is good for you, encouraging relaxation, cooperation, and a sense of achievement."

Happy April & Happy Gardening!
