Useful Tips for Gardening on a Budget

Maintaining a lush and beautiful garden does not have to be an expensive endeavor. You can find plenty of useful ways to garden on a budget, as long as you are willing to put in the care and time necessary. We can help you out so here are a few tips to get you started.  

1. Grow using seeds
A true garden will be filled with beautiful flowers that give it some much needed color and make the garden look more alive. However, flowers can be expensive. That is why a cheaper alternative is always to grow them from seeds. It might be more time consuming, but the payoff is usually worth it. You can plant a combination of annuals and biennials such as hollyhocks and foxgloves so that your garden can bloom during the summer and at the start of the following year, as well.

2. Trade seedlings for cuttings
A great way to garden on a budget is to do it with someone else. That way the two of you can complement your needs and you both save money. For example, one way is to simply trade seedlings between the two of you. Certain plants such as fuchsia and pelargoniums will strike even from just cuttings which usually just get thrown out.

3. Use homemade weed killer
You will need to use weed killer in order to keep the pesky plants at bay. There’s no need to go out and buy it when you can make it yourself, however. A spray made from white vinegar distilled at full strength is more than capable of killing the plants you want to dispose of.
