The Trellis

Don’t screw your trellis right into the wall. Leave a little gap of about 2-3 inches between the trellis and the wall. It will help the plant to wind itself on the trellis and grow in a much more comfortable way.

Planting the Bulbs in Summer

As soon as the summer comes us gardeners start thinking of planting new bulbs. But there is a problem. Rodents! Small rodents like to eat these bulbs. So what do we do? Before planting the bulb put it into a small bag and sprinkle small amount of curry powder on it and shake the bag. Keep repeating the process until the bulb has a light coating of the curry powder. This will help disguise the smell of the bulb so that the rodents cannot find it.
