You could try to boil weeds if you are trying to remain organic. A pot of boiling hot water can be one of the most safe weed destroyers. Douse the weeds with this pot, just avoid the nearby plants. The weeds' roots will be damaged by the boiling water; normally, this prevents them from continuing to grow.
Choose higher yield plant varieties. A disease-resistant hybrid plant can be a good option to consider over a more traditional variety due to its tendency to produce higher yields.
Use both biennials and annuals to add color to your flower bed. You can use biennial and annual flowers to brighten the bed, and let you change how it looks. They can make a handy, gap-filler between shrubs and perennials located in sunny areas. Some varieties are hollyhocks, petunias and sunflowers.
Split up your irises. Take clumps that have become overgrown and divvy them up into separate plants. When the foliage dies, take the bulbous irises and lift them. The bulbs should split up normally in the hand, and should flower when replanted for the next year. Divide up the rhizomes with a knife. From the outside cut the new pieces and then get rid of the old center. Each piece should retain a minimum of one sturdy offshoot capable of spurting new growth. Replant each one immediately.
Though you can often place houseplants into new pots, some varieties will not do well if you disrupt the roots. To see if a plant should be re-potted, turn it upside down, tap the bottom of the container and see if it falls out. If you see a lot of roots, it is time to get a new pot. If there is mainly dirt and not many roots, your plan is just fine in the current pot, and does not need to be replanted.
Some houseplants may require some humidity. You can create humidity in any environment by grouping different plants together in one pot, or replanting the specimen into a larger pot and filling the gap in with compost or stones. One other way you can provide houseplants with proper humidity levels is to spray them with a mist of water a couple times a day.
In the cold winter months, you can salvage certain plants by bringing them into the house. It's a good idea to save any expensive plants or those that will thrive in indoor heat. When you dig up the plant, carefully avoid the roots, then place it in a container.
