Amazing! I would love to have something like this. But sadly I have no room for that in my flat. Maybe some more ideas for small places?

I completely agree that gardening in small-spaced city areas is a true challenge. However, as every green thumber knows, nothing is impossible. And this article proves this statement. I like all ideas listed here, especially the one about starting an entire garden from seeds. Very challenging! I offer you my favorite tips for small scale gardening I hope you will like them.

Post image for The Green Way to Spring Clean

I love the idea of spring cleaning. A time to open the windows, dust off winter, and shake out the chill. Read more »

Using natural cleaning products is always better than harsh chemicals. But it's important to remember what debra pointed out. Too much acidity can strip away sealers on counter tops. I once dripped lemon juice on my concrete counter top and it burned right through the beeswax sealer, it still has marks on it. And vinegar can ruin wax jobs or the finish on some laminate or cork floors.

Green is always the best way of doing cleaning related stuff. Baking soda IMO is something that can help in almost everything that must be cleaned. It's clearly "magical". Thanks for the great post and all the help you provide with it :) I already shared it with some of my friends.

Such a good idea... so simple, yet I haven't done it yet and I KNOW I waste plastic utensils at work. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love this! I can make these out of some shirts :)

Did this last year and now have beautiful blooms in my room! Just follow the steps exactly
Sylwia -Apr 17, 2015, 6:21PM
It's great idea :D I made already two homemade papers so I'll try with seeds. I tried to place in mine dry flowers, but the paper was stained by them in yellow (can I say that? English isn't my native language D:). I will try again!

This DIY is so perfect! ^_^ Also- those apothecary candles (like the one in the second to last photo) are seriously THE BEST! The tobacco and patchouli one is my favorite <3

Baking soda would not make a good substitute for washing soda.

Heya- Just a passing comment as an ecologist- feeding birds in areas that get real winters (obviously excluding Florida) and migrating birds, putting out bird feeders like these out in the winter actually detours the birds from migrating as they would normally and ends in its ultimate death. Something we call an "ecological trap". Be mindful of this..

Beautiful idea! Looks good and good for birds also!

I love this idea! I just inherited my grandma's old singer so I am so jumping on this DIY! xo Michaela

I find that buying them at the thrift store is much more cost effective. I always find my cloth napkins there for 10 cents a piece or in a set of 6 for 50 cents. No one ever wants them and they always have a lot, sometimes they even have really nice ones that are embroidered.

what difference does it makes if the seeds are "native" or not--Flowers are flowers
steve -Jul 26, 2015, 11:05PM
My only concern is that you make sure that the seeds you are spreading are from plants that are native to the area that you are bombing. We don't need to be spreading non-native species which could be invasive. There are plenty of groups and organizations that can help you with this. So, go ahead and bomb with native seeds.
