Gardening Tips and How-To

The Shoestring Gardener

300 Pages Packed With Hundreds of Eco-Friendly, Creatively Frugal Gardening How-Tos, Remedies & Tips!

It's good to know that so many people want to find out about how to make the most of what they have already at hand!  Visitors to the website are always asking about gardening in an eco-friendly way and recycling used items, in order to save a bit of money...and to save the planet at the same time.

Claudia has put together a whole range of ideas for those who look at an old piece of drainpipe and think, "Now, what can I do with that?  Or for those who cut the hosepipe in two with the lawnmower, and, rather than seeing it as a disaster, see it as an opportunity!

An example of the ideas in the book include making your own plant supports, non-toxic pest sprays, cold frames and garden tools, reconditioning your soil for better crops and flowers, and growing produce from shop-bought items, to name but a few.

If you're that way inclined, this is the book for you!

Self Sufficient Life

This is a broad reaching resource all about being self-sufficient.  In these times of likely supply chain issues being self-sufficient is becoming something to consider in our lives.

This is a website covering separate 3rd party resources such as growing vegetables, keeping chickens, guinea fowl & other poultry, beekeeping (honey bees), herbal remedies, vegetable gardening, hydroponics (growing in water without soil) & greenhouse crops.

Food Crisis? No Problem

There's no doubt we are going to face food shortages in the near future and we will need to plan for this eventuality.

This resource addresses how our survival may depend on being able to become more self-resourceful.  Already, friends are beginning to look to alternative methods for self-sufficiency through growing food in their gardens and small holdings. 

This method looks at aquaponics, which is the growing and breeding of plants and fish together (hydroponics is plants alone).

"During this uncertain economic time, aquaponics is truly a life-saver.  Think of the added value this system will bring to you and your family.  Having up to 10 times more plants means you could more forward to family, friends, or even sell the food!"
