Tip of the Week: Citrus Starters
Posted on February 27 2017
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! Join us this week, as we tell you how to start a seedling using a citrus peel! In the early spring time, starting a seedling may prove to be a little difficult given the amount of nutrients needed to get the plant to grow healthy and strong. However, with a little help of a citrus peel, you can cut this problem down to size. All you need to do it to halve a citrus fruit of your choice, gut out the fruit itself, fill with soil, and sow the seed into it. The peel has plenty of nutrients like carbon and nitrogen that plants need to starts off, and once they start growing, you can easily transfer them to a pot since the peel is biodegradable—throw the whole thing into the pot. Just be sure to poke some holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Sometimes, the best thing for your garden can be found right in your kitchen!
