Organic gardening is a great way to teach kids about nature. Plant vegetables your family likes to eat and flowers that will bloom all summer long.
A garden can be modern and rely on technology and science or it can be completely organic and eco-friendly. It can also be a greenhouse that helps you grow fruits and veggies all year.
A GARDENING whizz has issued an urgent warning over a little-known plant that can take over your garden.
The woman posted a clip to TikTok sharing their advice on a key mistake which could see your flowerbeds ruined.
She said that one “frustrating” plant is a feature of many gardens but can be tricky to keep in check.
The garden expert explained: “Mint spreads so fast and easy.
“It can be so frustrating to keep it under control.”
Mint is a popular herb for green-fingered Brits, especially those that are keen cooks.
However, some species of mint are considered invasive and most have a root structure that spreads quickly over a very wide area.
Fortunately, the social media user shared a handy tip on how to keep the spread to a minimum.
She advised uprooting any mint that you have already planted and placing it in a deep pot or bucket.
You should then fill this with soil and place it in your growing bed, with the lip at least two inches above the surface.

This allows you to grow mint alongside your other herbs or flowers without leaving it to spread unchecked.
Then remove any last mint shoots to make sure it’s all contained.
Commenters were amazed by the hack.
One wrote: “I started mint in an areogarden hoping it would be different… nope.
“That sucker still tried growing into the tomatoes and lavender.”
Another added: “I’m about to plant mine now. I have it in a pot.”
It comes after another woman revealed a dirty soil secret that will make your houseplants flourish.
Meanwhile, Gardeners’ World’s Monty Don issued a strong warning about the hidden crisis in gardening.
