Growing roses in containers is a great way to bring their color, fragrance and beauty into living areas Here's how you can do it. Now the first thing to do, is to choose a nice open sunny site with plenty of air movement That will help prevent some of the disease issues Now, when you choose your varieties obviously pick A nice healthy specimen, if possible choose them when they're in flower, because you'll be able to pick your favorite colors And, also why not have a sniff. because many of them are really very beautifully.
Fragrant I'm using David Austin variety of Rose is here because I like the all fashion flowers that comes with them I love their excellent disease resistance and also some of them are delightfully fragrant And the fragrance that comes from varieties like this Gertrude Jekyll is a lovely thing to have anywhere near your home. Now, when you get your plants home. Choose a good sized container, that's important Because roses are hungry, vigorous plants You'll find that a larger size container means they'll grow better but also they'll be easier to water during the summertime.
Choose a good potting compost, make sure the container has a hole in the bottom And good drainage, and then really just during the growing season it's a matter of Watering them and perhaps also giving them some liquid feeding, perhaps every week or ten days Then snip out the old, spent flowers To keep new fresh buds and new growth coming up from underneath And, if they ever become a little tall and leggy it's okay to give them a summer prune. That means going in and trimming back a few of the shoots, a bit further down in the bush.
To encourage new fresh growth, and of course, a new round of flower buds and Flowering Now roses in containers are going to freeze during the wintertime if the left outdoors, so either you have to move the pot and all, into a more sheltered location Or better still, my advice would be to take the plant at the end to the Fall or early winter and plant it out somewhere in the garden, so if you're able to grow it as a beautiful garden rose. Where ever you grow your roses, make sure that you were.
Self Freezing CocaCola The trick that works on any soda!
With this one simple trick, you'll be able to take any bottle of soda, and pour out an instant slushy on command. Now if you don't believe what you're seeing, that's ok, but it is real, and in this project you'll discover the insanely easy secret to making an instant soda slushy. For this project, grab a bottle of room temperature soda, and start shaking it violently. We want as much pressure to build up inside as we can get. Now I've done this with these 500mL bottles, and set them in the freezer for 3 hours and 15 minutes. This is the point when.
They're colder than freezing, but not actually frozen. Now you can show your friends that it's just a normal soda, but watch what happens if we simply release the pressure, tighten the cap, and turn it upside down. In just 3 seconds, the entire bottle has turned to an icy soda slush. Pour it in a glass, and you'll get a good idea of how thick the slush really is, and when it starts pushing up at the top you can see it's a light and fluffy, delicious carbonated ice. Now let's try removing the pressure very slowly. This is going to.
Take a bit of patience, but when you get the cap off, you might notice, your soda didn't freeze. If you pour it into a frosty bowl that just came out of the freezer, it'll ice up right before your eyes. There's one chilled soda ready to be served. You could try keeping your soda liquified by pouring it in a clean bowl, then freezing it by dropping in one flake of ice. These crystals will grow rapidly, until your entire bowl is filled, and now we have another chilled soda, ready for your enjoyment. On a bigger scale, like in a glass,.
You'll notice that the crystals collect at the top. To get them to spread out, just take a spoon, or a straw, and give it a little swirl. You should see the whole drink quickly ices over. Now, if you're wondering why this works, it's because the liquid is supercooled and actually wants to freeze. It just needs some help getting started. Now this works with every soda, and sports drink that I've tried because it's the water in the drink that's actually freezing. As the ice forms, the syrup gets trapped between the ice crystals, so.
The slush keeps its flavor. If you try this yourself, keep in mind that every freezer is a little different, so just play around with the time it takes to get your best results. I tried supercooling canned soda and found that they work as well, but you have to release the pressure very very slowly or they'll ice up in the can. When you do get them open, you'll see the trick works exactly the same as the others. Well now you know how to superchill, your favorite soft drink, and master the art of the 3 second slushy. If you like this project,.
Growing Zinnias At Home With P. Allen Smith
I'm squeezing the last bit of color out of my garden. I wanna show you how. Just look at all this color in my garden, and I'm embarrassed to tell you how late in the season it actually is. You see, these were just planted about 45 to 50 days ago from seed in the ground. You see, if you wanna grow Zinnias like this, you wanna make sure the soil is warm and you give them plenty of sunshine. And they just need moderate water. And when you water them,.
You don't wanna water them overhead it's better to run like a soaker hose or something or deep soak the ground because you can get powdery mildew on the leaves of Zinnias if you over water them. Plus, it doesn't make the flowers last as long and they're not as good for cutting. When I planted these I wanted just to have a mixture of colors, so what I did is I just got some packs of seed, mixed them all up together, and sowed them down this long row. And if you'll look closely you'll see the myriad of colors we have here.
there's apricot and there's peach, there's red, there's yellow, even creamy whites in a wide range of pinks and red. Now the other thing to look closely at is I also have some different flower forms there are doubles, there are singles, and those that are considered a cactus form because they look like a cactus bloom with their slightly rolled leaves. I think the flower buds are equally fascinating. If you look closely, they almost look reptilian in that they have scales. It's really hard to tell what color it's going to be. But the.
Form of that, when you examine it really closely, you can see it's quite beautiful in it of itself. The other interesting thing about Zinnias, like so many cut flowers, is that the more you cut them the more they put off side shoots and produce more and more flowers. So you're not hurting anything buy coming out here and gathering up a bouquet like this every other day or so. And it also makes sense to come along and cut off any spent blooms. What you're doing is you're telling the plant that it needs to produce more flowers. You.
See, the plant is programmed to produce seed, so if you're loping off these blooms where the seed pods are the plants thinking I've gotta produce more and more and more. That leads me to one other thing You see, each one of these as they dry are great for saving because you can plant the seed next year. One other thing to keep in mind Before the blooms get too old and tired, you can actually collect them and dry them by just putting them in silica gel, and over about a week they'll dehydrate and you could use these.
How to Make a BottleCap Party Whistle!
If you're at a party this summer and wanna grab someones attention, you could try charming the crowd with an improvised pan flute, or you could go for a more direct approach. In this project, we're turning bottle caps and drink cans, into sportsstyle party whistles, that'll give you the power you need, to summon the attention you deserve We're all familiar with the term lifehacks but this summer, the guys at mike's hard lemonade asked me to help put a refreshing twist on it with what they're calling mikehacks Mikehack basically a lifehack that makes any social occasion, more awesome.
I tried hot gluing some glass bottles together, and found that yes, they really can work as a pan flute. It's a pretty awesome idea, but can be pretty messy and take up a lot of space. So let's try making another kind of party favor, that's just as awesome, but a little easier to manage. We'll need to start this project with an empty aluminum drink can. Now if we use something like a pair of scissors to make some strategic cuts, we can harvest a lightweight sheet of aluminum metal. Now before you throw the scraps away, make sure you save a tab.
Or two, because we'll need those for measurements, in just a minute. Alright, let's cut a long narrow strip from the sheet metal, making sure the edges are as straight as possible, then cut a smaller, stubbier piece as well. You can see the long strip is the width of a single can tab, while the smaller piece is as wide, and as tall, as two pieces laid side by side. We need to join these pieces together with the smaller rectangle centered on top, about a quarter inch down from the end. The two.
Sides wrap around the back holding it in place, and now you can snip the top corners off, if you feel like it, and finish up by folding the tab over to lock everything together. We've just formed the mouthpiece for our whistle. Now let's grab the other end of the strip and push it back through the mouth piece, being careful not to bend it. You'll see what we're going to do with this, in just a minute. Alright, it's time to get busy with our bottle caps. I tried using a pair of scissors to snip the sides, and cut a little notch in.
Each cap, so when the two bottoms are lined up, they form a round container with a symmetrical hole at the top. Let's bring back the piece we made earlier and fit the barrel inside one of the caps, then expand it so it completely fills the inside. Now that we know it fits together nicely, we can line the inside of the cap with some hotglue, then place the rounded strip back in position. When the glue has hardened, it should look like this. Now this is the point where we form the noise maker. Carefully cut the strip so it lines.
Up with the top of the notch, then pull the scrap part out of the mouthpiece. There's only one thing left to do, and that's to add hotglue to the other cap, and press the two pieces firmly together, making sure the notches line up symmetrically. Now for one last embellishment, I tried cutting one of the tabs in half, and hotgluing it to the back, so now we have the option of adding a lanyard. That'll just make it fully accessible, anytime we want it. The whistle works by directing air through.
The mouthpiece, and splitting it over the sharp edge of the metal. Not only does it look good, but it actually sounds good too. If you try rolling your tongue when you blow, it'll sound a lot like a referee's whistle, and it's really, really loud. Well now you know how to convert your cans and bottle caps, into colorful and customizable party whistles, that'll summon you attention when you need it, and make a great conversation piece when you don't. Well that's it for now. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some.
How to Grow a Lemon Tree At Home With P. Allen Smith
Hey, I know you can do it. I want you to grow up and be this. You see this I want you to grow up to be this. Hey, let me show you how to grow your own lemon trees. You understand Have you ever grown a lemon tree from seed Well, it's actually a lot easier than you might think. I did a little experiment. You see, all you have to do is pick up some lemons at the store, that's what I did here, and then you have to decide whether you're going.
To peel this little outer husk off of them or not. And so, once they dry a little bit, you can peel that little outer husk off. So there's one that has the husk off of it, and here's one that still has the husk on it. Well, with my little experiment what I learned is that if you peel the husk off they germinate about two weeks earlier. But, these were done, half of them were done with the seed husk on, and half with the seed husk off. And you can see by now, which is some three months later, we're well into spring,.
They all are about the same size. So, you know, I wouldn't worry about trying to pull the husk off of those seed. So, I'll plant these into larger pots over the course of the summer. And what I like to do is start things and hold things in my greenhouse, and then move them outdoors. And today I'm moving all my citrus outside for summer vacation. Like this one, you can see it's growing up to be a nice big lemon tree because it's eating up all of its fertilizer just like it's supposed to be. So I put it over here.
On the backside of the greenhouse with some of the other citrus trees. So this is going to become sort of citrus world back here. They'll love the sun and they'll love all the fresh air. And what I try and do this time of year is make sure that they get plenty of sun. Citrus love full sun, they like plenty of circulation. The flowers are fragrant. And if you look closely you'll see I even have baby lemons. Look at those. But I want to make sure there are no insect problems, and then I want to make sure that they're.
Feed, so I give them a good dose of food this time of year just by sprinkling a little bit on top. I like to use an organic. And then to keep the soil consistently moist, I make sure that I use saucers like this to place them on, so that the soil doesn't become dry, because I don't want them to drop any of the fruit. If I want this little tree to grow faster, what I would do is take some of these lemons off and let the energy go.

Use this bad boy as a tool for good than to auction it off and give 100 of the proceeds to build tiny houses for the homeless the winner of this place will simply donate the bid to a nonprofit and then this will be my gift to them So let me show you the inside This little guy is very very small infact it is even a little bit too short for me to stand in and I'm about 5foot10 it is a simple plan With a shelf for storing a.
Little bit of stuff, a futon for sleeping and reading, and an LED bulb that is powered by portable solar panel on the roof. The solar panel can also charge up your cellphone, bike lights, computer, or whatever other little things that you have. Since I am moving closer to a life of nonownership most of the little possessions can be included. If someone wanted to jump right in and live here the house is on a trailer and it is a very smooth process to take it to a new location.
Here is a couple ideas of how you could use the tiny home first of all you could do what I have done and live off the grid in the city or in the country all you would need is a composting toilet, a rainwater harvesting to collect water for drinking and a cooking stove of sorts another thing you could do is you could put it in your back yard and rent it out so that way you could reduce the cost of your rent. Or you could stay in it on the weekends and rent.
Your house out. That way you could either live rent free our at least reduce your rent drastically. You could also turn it into a little kids play house, it would be kind of an expensive kids play house, but a fun one and a good story or you could turn it into a guest bedroom for the people staying at your house and another great idea is that you could give it to somebody who doesn't have a house those are a couple of ways that you could put this thing to.

How to grow Serrano Peppers in containers
A pepper variety that has just the right heat for a variety of dishes the Serrano pepper is a versatile paper variety to grow in your garden music so we'll be growing our serrano pepper in this 16 inch wide container that holds about five gallons of soil the soil mix that I'm using to plant this pepper variety is about 50 compost mixed with 50 potting mix so the serrano pepper originated in Mexico and the heat rating of serrano pepper is slightly more spicy than a mild jalapeno so it's not very spicy it's not like a very hot.
Pepper but it's a quite a versatile pepper that you can use for a variety of dishes and as you can see the plant has grown very well its a very healthy pepper plant and it's already showing a lot of peppers that can be harvested and as you can see this pepper plant is very easy to grow in containers and is one of the most healthy pepper plants I have grown now some gardeners believe in pruning their pepper plants so that it grows more bushy now in my experience.

Peppers the key to growing great pepper plants is to make sure that the plan gets a lot of nutrients by using a rich compost or organic matter based potting mix and this was grown with about 50 percent organic matter and that provided the plant with a lot of nutrients that it would absorb and grow into this wonderful pepper plant now another thing that you need to remember is that do not use high nitrogen fertilizers especially when the pepper plant is established that will reduce the number of peppers that the plant produces you can use a tomato fertilizer that works.
