101 Organic Gardening Hacks + Giveaway
A tome of clever ideas for the crafty & frugal gardener
As an organic gardener I’m always trying to learn new ways to grow a nutritious and beautiful garden on the cheap. Gardening is one of those hobbies where you can succeed by spending an absolute fortune or practically nothing at all — it really just comes down to learning the tricks of the trade.
Ideas from the book
Though I’m always scanning Pinterest for ideas, I’m delighted to say that this new book, ‘101 Gardening Hacks’ by Shawna Coronado has all that I’ve heard about and so much more. She credits her grandmothers for teaching her what she knows but has no doubt been adding to their library of garden knowledge. Here are a few ideas she shares:
- How to grow potatoes from the shop — I’ve been told to never do this but if Shawna says it’s OK then I’m taking her word for it
- When herbs bolt, let them go — the flowers are great food for pollinators
- Use trails of ordinary flour to create outlines for your flower border
- How to create self-watering containers
If you’d like to discover the other ideas this book presents for yourself, I’d like to give you a chance to win a free copy. To enter, please comment below with why you’d like the book or even a gardening hack of your own. Those who share this facebook post will also get another chance at winning.
I’ll select the winner at random on Friday, January 27th and the giveaway is open to those resident in the European Union, Isle of Man, United Kingdom, and Channel Islands. Good luck!
In 101 Organic Gardening Hacks, you’ll find the top tips, tricks and solutions unearthed by Shawna Coronado. Some are practical timesavers; others offer clever ways to ‘upcycle’ everyday items in your garden. Every hack, however, is completely organic and unfailingly environmentally friendly!
