Try some Citrus Planters for your garden
After you have eaten half an orange or grapefruit, use the skin as a ‘’pot’’ for germinating seedlings. Scoop out the remaining pulp and fill the half with soil, then plant your seeds.
When you are ready to put them in the ground, plant them, citrus half and all. The citrus will decay, adding nutrients to the soil!
If your garden is overrun with grasshoppers, plant basic around the borders. The grasshoppers will munch on the basil and leave your other plants alone!
