Here are some green gardening tips that will add colour to your spring garden and help the environment:
Before you backfill or put soil on top of your newly planted bulbs this green idea will help to keep animals away.
When planting bulbs like tulips and crocus, especially, be sure to use human hair that you can get at any hair salon, put it on top of the bulb and then backfill with soil. The human hair keeps rabbits, chipmunks and squirrels away from your spring bulbs.
This green idea is to recycle human hair instead of putting it into the landfill. You may also compost human hair.
Another tip regarding bulbs is to plant Hyacinths or Grape Mascari, which add spring colour. Animals such as squirrels and chipmunks will stay away from them.
Thirdly if you are so inclined to compost it is recommended to crush egg shells before putting them in the compost bin. This will help to drastically reduce the breakdown time.
