    I didn’t know that nitrogen is integral to the growth of the plants. I have been trying to find a fertilizer for my plants, but I don’t know what kind to get. I will have to make sure that I get a good mix of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Thank you for the information!

    Hi there, Great tips by the way and thank you.
    I did have a question though. I’m hoping you can answer it for
    me since you seem to be pretty knowledgeable about gardening.
    Will a DIY vinegar herbicide affect soil acidity? I have a
    garden bed that I want to use herbacide on but
    I don’t want to ruin the soil. If you had some insight I would greatly appreciate it.

      Vinegar will absolutely effect your soil pH! It is acidic and so it will lower your garden soil’s pH. Depending on how diluted the solution is, it can be very detrimental to plant growth! Be very careful when using these DIY herbicide methods…

  3. It was really nice how you said that it is best to keep in mind the date when the fertilizer needs to be applied as well as the amount needed as using the wrong amount can do more damage than good to the soil. I will take note of that one because I am planning to revive the small plot of land that my mom used for her vegetables. Considering the idea that I do not know the first thing about plants, I needed all the help I can get. Thank you for sharing this.
