Or better „You can always make something even better out of what you have!” like a use to say. This weekend I decided to make the pond which is in my garden better than it already is. A pond on its own is amazing. It changes the micro climate in my garden, I have always something to look at and the animals in there are breathtaking.
My pond hosts 3 different kinds of dragon flies (red, blue and green), I have 2 big frogs, 6 grass snakes and uncountable bugs and insects. If that wouldn´t be enough, I got a water lily that is unbelievable beautiful and has up to tree flowers at once. For me it´s fun to just observe the pond, there is always something happening and I never get bored. It´s like watching a wildlife documentation, but I can sit on my porch swing!
- Talk about wanting a garden
Most people start to search for s spot first. It can be so much easier, if you just spread the words! I talked about wanting a garden for years. After I moved I actually started with a big balcony. I learned a lot: How many plants can my balcony take? How hot and killing the south side can be? How to make watering more efficient? And so much more.
With talking about your wishes, you will get to know more people with the same desires. Even better, you will find out who already has a garden or specific plants on their balcony. That is your first step in to the seed network.
What you need?
A handful of ivy leafs, a single sock (that´s super easy, there is always one as left over)
How you do it?
Just put the leafs into the sock, make a knot to keep them in their and of you go. Throw it in the washing machine. Press start and wait.
How to get ivy?
It grows everywhere. Just take a piece with roots, plant it in a pot and grow your own.
The laundry gets super clean and it smells like garden *mmmmhhhhhh*
