Do you ever wish that your fresh mint leaves would not grow as quickly and overcome your garden? Rein their growth; you can do this simply by planting mint inside a larger garden container or pot.

Know when is the best time to harvest your vegetables. Different veggies have different windows of time in which they should be picked; it is during this period that the vegetable is most flavorful. Zucchini and baby peas, for example, have the best flavor when harvested early. However, tomatoes should be as ripe as they can be when pulled from the vine to ensure the best taste. You should know the proper time to pick vegetables.
Grow heather so that you can attract useful insects. Bees like heather, and they get their nectar from it early in the spring. Beds of heather are largely undisturbed and make a perfect living space for spiders, beetles and a variety of other beneficial tenants. Because of this, you should put on a pair of gloves when it’s time to prune the heather.
You must always take care of your knees when working in the garden. It’s not a good idea to spend much time standing while you are bent over at the waist. If you kneel, you can easily work on your plants without placing stress on your back. A knee pad can be placed under your knees to protect them from damage and strain while you are working.
