PROTECT YOUR POTS FROM FREEZING WINTER COLD

 
 

Pots made of clay or concrete are more likely to withstand freezing weather in the cold winter months without cracking if they're sealed on the inside.

Here's what you do.

Coat the inside walls and bottom of the container with a paint-on roof coating (not to be confused with roofing bull). Use an inexpensive paintbrush with nylon bristles to apply the coating.

Let dry thoroughly before filling coated pots with soil and plants. Your pots won't crack and it will give them a longer lifespan. It will also slow down the salts from making their way to the exterior of the pots so they won't turn " salty white" as quickly.

Gardening-tip:



Get More Aroma and Flavor

Herbs respond really well to organic fertilizers. They help build strong essential oils, and grow a stronger plant.

Try fertilizing your herbs with a combination of Hydrolized Fish Fertilizer and Sea Kelp.

You will notice a huge difference in flavor and aroma.
