Are you busy propagating plants or trying to make your plant-cutting arrangements last a little longer? Plant cuttings involve taking a leafy plant—think pothos or philodendrons—and cutting it below a section of leaf, where you might already be seeing small aerial roots forming.
Putting the plant cutting in water will allow additional roots to grow straight out of the base and sides of the plant cutting (and help aerial roots grow faster). This gives you a brand-new plant that grows from just a few leaves of its original plant mother.
Oftentimes, when you're creating a new plant cutting, you have to take preventative measures to protect the fresh plant cutting since the open wound is prone to infection, mold, or fungus.Plants that are exposed to the air will be able to create a callus over their trimmed stems to prevent infection; once in the water, however, the exposed section of the stem can easily fall victim to root rot and not be able to create a natural callus.
To combat this issue, you can create a seal of your own to help protect your plant while it’s in water. If you’re tired of rotting roots and quick-withering plant cuttings, here are a few ways you can protect your precious cuttings from certain death.
Wax is one of the most common and easiest ways to seal a plant cutting. All you’ll need to do is dip the cut end of your plant into a bit of melted wax to form a complete seal around the open end of the stem.
Let the wax harden slightly and then apply additional layers of wax until the stem has a thick seal over the open cut. Once all of the layers have completely hardened, you can transfer the plant straight into a container of water. Digital creator, @plants_itsavibe, demonstrates how to create the wax

Most councils will recycle your Christmas tree, but little is as sad, in those grey days post-Christmas, than the sight of enormous piles of discarded trees at drop-off points, waiting to be collected. Councils normally shred them and use the chippings as mulches in parks or woodland areas, so there’s nothing to stop you doing the same at home.

If you're eager to embrace a maximalist design style at home, note that the look is very much in vogue today, with many people living by the «more is more» philosophy and embracing the colorful and whimsical. That said, it's important to note the maximalism of the 21st century is a bit different than in decades past.
These days, home renovation projects are often discussed in terms of your return on investment or how quickly a project can speed up the selling process. It’s widely agreed upon that renovating a kitchen or bathroom is typically a financially responsible choice if you plan to sell because these projects typically see a great return in the form of a higher sale price—or a quicker sale.
LIKE EVERYONE around this time of year, I get into a “looking back while looking ahead” combined mindset. Today I want to do just that, but with a sort of ecological filter, taking stock of how things in the garden fared in the bigger environmental picture and what opportunities lie ahead for me to read nature’s signals even more closely and be an ever better steward of the place.
