 Use scent to deter foxes


Foxes have a very strong sense of smell and will eat almost anything. Gardens with chickens or rabbits, or bird feeders, accessible pots, and crops are particularly attractive. You can use some scents to deter foxes, they are said to dislike the smell of chilies and garlic, so pour boiling water and spray your garden as a fox repellant. Other animal repellents are available, but be aware of the risk to other wildlife and always read the manufacturers' instructions carefully. If a territory is marked by a fox, it will take some effort to move them, and if they feel their territory is being threatened, they may increase the amount of marking.

 How to Choose a Plant That Will Last Until Christmas Right now, boxes of poinsettias are being loaded onto the back of trucks and headed to a store near you. Whether or not you end up with a beautiful plant that lasts until the New Year depends on what happens when it reaches its destination. From the way poinsettias are opened to where they are displayed and maintained in the store, you wouldn't believe how often stores handle poinsettias.

When Aerate your houseplant soil

 Why you should aerate your houseplant soil Let me start with a different question: Have you ever tried holding your breath and drinking a glass of water? Doesn't sound like a good idea, does it? But that's what we do to our houseplants every time we allow their potting soil to get as hard as cement. The solution is simple: soil aeration. Here's a little guide on why you should aerate your houseplants and how to do it. What is houseplant soil aeration and why should I care? Even if your middle school science classes were as boring as mine, you'll still remember this message: Through the process of photosynthesis, plants use their leaves to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Humans need oxygen to survive, so humans need to have more plants around them. (Or at least that's what I tell myself when I go for another browse at my local thrift store.) It turns out that's only half the story. Plants also need oxygen to survive, something we often don

Lighter clothing is always a good idea, and drinking extra water is a great way to make sure you are not dehydrated. Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen and sunscreen. When you are in it, do not forget your houseplants. On long, hot days, your plants will have different needs in the summer. But often, home plant owners continue their routine plant care routine. Unfortunately, if the requirements of one plant are not met, you may find that fewer houseplants fall off.

7 Houseplant Trends That Will Be Everywhere

houseplant trends in 2022 It has been two years since turning our homes into pot forests has become a thing. When the plague drove us into the house, we filled our habitats with trendy fiddle-leaf figs, straight-70s spider plants, and easy-to-maintain snake plants.

Here's what he and fellow botanists Hilton Carter and Maria Green have to say about the popularity of houseplants in 2022. 1.
