You’d be surprised at how a few simple household ingredients can completely transform your garden. The best part?

Check out the list below to get started, and let us know your own gardening tips in the comments!
Tip #1: Try this super easy way to grow tomato seedlings.
I was so impressed with this simple technique!
What you’ll need:
- Potting soil or garden mix
- Container or pot
- Ripe tomatoes
The following video demonstrates just how to get your tomato seedlings from these 3 items.
Tip #2: Turn your plastic milk jug into a watering jug.
I love this idea because it’s all about recycling what you have around the house to save money. Let’s face it, gardening can become expensive. The other handy thing is that you can make one with a super fine/gentle spray by using a small needle and one with a more substantial flow by using a bigger needle.

Tip #3: Use coffee grounds in your garden.
Recycle those coffee grounds! They make an excellent fertilizer and compost….and so much more! Check out this wonderful article on just how many benefits coffee grounds can bring to your garden this Spring.
Tip #4: Use crushed eggshells.
One way to protect your plants from pests is by sprinkling crushed eggshells at their base.

Tip #5: Re-grow your vegetables from kitchen scraps.
After your meal, don’t throw out the leftover vegetable scraps! You can regrow so many different vegetables by sticking the bottom end of them into a well-prepared patch of good soil and making sure their bed is kept moist. Surprisingly easy!
