If you want to speed up the germination of some seeds that you have just planted and watered, retain the soilâ??s moisture and keep the birds and bugs away, cover the area with plastic wrap.
Keep the wrap in place by anchoring it with stones.
Remove as soon as you see the seeds have sprouted.
Jodi Ann Karpes of Green Queen suggests that you cover up the ends of curtain rods with Glad Wrap.
This protects the delicate material, like lace curtaining, from tearing.
She says, too, that lining paint trays with Glad Wrap saves all the cleaning up of the paint and you will avoid a situation where your colours can get mixed.
