Now you can transplant them without any worries.
Your tool handles can easily be used as handy rulers. Tools with long handles, such as shovels, hoes and rakes can be made into measuring sticks.

Then, with a permanent marker, you want to label distances. When you are gardening next, you’ll have a ruler beside you at all times.
Use climbers to cover walls and fences. Climbers have many different uses and spread quickly. They may grow up through some existing shrubs and trees, and can even be worked to grow around an arbor.

You can be sure that varieties such as climbing roses, wisteria, jasmine, clematis and honeysuckle will grow very well.
