Grow a Lemon Tree at Home

How to grow Lemons

Lemons are probably one of the healthiest fruits on the planet, good for so many reasons, so you should think seriously about how to grow a lemon tree at home this year.

Saying that lemons are a ‘super-food’ is really an understatement. Not only do they add abundant flavour to a variety of dishes, but they also boast a ton of health benefits, as well as being rich in antioxidants and containing useful anti-inflammatory properties.

Naturally, as we all know, lemons contain vitamin C and B. They boost your immune system and energize your body.

To grow at home, you will need the following –

  • 1 lemon
  • good healthy soil
  • a large container (or pot)
  • Breathable plastic film
  • some sun
  • focus

To Begin Growing a Lemon Tree:

  1. Fill the container with the healthy soil and mix it with a little bit of water in order to dampen it.
  2. Below the rim, leave an inch of space.
  3. Take a seed from a well-formed lemon.
  4. Clean the seed, but take care not to dry it out.
  5. Make a hole for about half an inch in the soil and plant the seed.
  6. Cover it with soil and water it well.
  7. Cover the pot with a breathable plastic film in order to keep the pot moistened.
  8. Place the pot in a sunny area.
  9. To care for the plant, don’t water it too frequently.
  10. After 1-2 weeks when it starts sprouting, remove the plastic film, and place in direct sunlight.

Okay, I know this assumes a certain level of sunlight where you live, so start indoors if necessary.

To nurture the Lemon:

  • The lemon plant requires regular watering, but not overdoing it, you should be able to tell from the soil.
  • The plant ideally needs to be exposed to direct sunlight at least 8 hours a day.
  • Feel free to add fertilizer or small amounts of compost to the lemon tree.
  • You can keep the pot inside your house facing a window, or place it in your garden.

More Reasons to Grow Lemons

Drinking one half-cup of lemon juice every day raises citrate levels in the urine. Studies have shown that this could protect against calcium stones in the kidney.

Mixing lemon juice with honey can help alleviate the discomfort that comes from a nasty sore throat.

Leave caffeinated drinks behind, and start your day off with hot water and fresh lemon juice to stimulate your digestive track and add vitamin C.

So what could better than having your own fresh lemon tree to keep you in supply with tasty, juicy lemons? Grow a lemon tree at home and enjoy.




How To Read Dog Behaviour

How To Read your Dog’s Behaviour

Have you ever wondered what your dog is doing when he or she is interacting with another dog, want to know how to read dog behaviour?

Do you feel like you’re watching some interaction in a foreign language as your dog communicates with another dog?

It can be really frustrating not knowing whether to step in and stop your dog or let the activity go on. We can misread our dog’s behaviour, and yet it’s actually pretty easy to interpret – when you know how!

dog behaviourKnowing whether your dog is happy when playing, or feeling distressed, can make all the difference to how they socialise with other dogs. There are actually so many tell-tale signs. All you need to know is what the signs are and then it’s like watching a movie in English rather than a foreign language. Of course dogs can read each other without any effort, it comes naturally to them, however for us humans it doesn’t.

We have to learn the different body language signals that they use. Here are some of the key gestures that you can watch out for to understand what your dog is thinking.

At the bottom of this article is a link to a video by Doggy Dan in which you can watch all the behaviours I mention below for yourself.

  1. The Head Over: placing their head over the back of another dog’s neck. This is one of the most common ways a dog will attempt to assert their dominance over another dog. It is actually neither good nor bad. Some dogs however will contest it if they are not happy being dominated. A dog which is not happy with this will however let the other dog know!
  2. Returning To Play: a dog returning to play more with another dog. This is a sign that suggests a dog is happy to play. Often this simple behaviour is overlooked by dog owners. Many times a dog may look like they are not enjoying things as they are being dominated and pushed around but is actually very happy and will run back for more… if they were really unhappy they would very likely stay away.
  3. Lifting a Paw: your dog stands still on 3 legs. This is a fairly submissive gesture that says I am submissive and nonthreatening. The other dog may react in a number of ways but it is generally a good sign.
  4. Hackles Up: the hair on the dogs back goes up. Very often people think that this means that the dog is being aggressive or going to be aggressive, however it can also just be sheer excitement. It does mean that the dog is very alert but this can be because they just love playing with other dogs. Keep an eye on your dog and don’t panic.
  5. 360 Degree Spins: one of the dogs completes a complete spin. The dog spinning will almost certainly be happy, and will be trying to encourage some play activity. When a dog turns their back on another dog it shows that they are relaxed and not scared. There are so many little things to look out for – some of which more obvious than others.

One of the best places to learn how to read dogs is Dan’s website the Online Dog Trainer. Dan even offers a 3 Day $1 trial of the site that you can take advantage of, so I suggest the next thing you do today is take a look inside the site! This video website is an excellent source of learning not only about how to interpret your dog’s behaviour but also how to stop unwanted behaviour and train dogs and puppies.

Stop My Cat Spraying

A common issue for new cat owners, and one I have experienced a few times myself when we got a new cat into our home – how do I stop my cat spraying?

Are you at your wits end trying to figure out how to find a solution? Well help is now at hand.

Cat Spraying No More is a system that has all the information you need to understand

  1. Why your cat is doing what it’s doing, and
  2. How to bring about a peaceful solution that will not only fix the problem, but will serve to bring you closer to your cat.

Spraying, or peeing, around the house is a big no-no, for obvious reasons; and sometimes, cats that regularly use their litter box still turn to other areas of the house to urinate or spray.

As a result, cat owners tend to focus on the issue of the mis-targeted urination, rather than on why the behavior is occurring – the key element to Cat Spraying No More.

The Stop My Cat Spraying  system carefully outlines various scenarios of unwanted spraying and targets possible causes in an easy to understand and well-laid out format.

The system eases the reader into the topic and playfully chides owners about the author’s own unfortunate experiences, how the author was able to overcome them, and how you can, too.

The author’s encouraging voice helps you to understand your cat a bit more. There are reasons why cats do what they do (as you can see from their expression !) and when things are not quite right, they react.

It explains the reasons why cats urinate outside their litter box.  Then it outlines a system for owners to follow, based on their specific situation, so results are targeted and more effective.

Depending on each scenario, there are detailed step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow.

Why This Sytem can help you:

  • Save money and time. No more carpet cleaning, upholstery shampooing and time wasted finding these incidents and attending to them.
  • Tricks you can use to get your cat to “like” its litter box again. This system helps you direct your cat back to using the litter box, on its own, without force.
  • A home free of stress and smell. Once you see how easy it is to get your cat back on track with this system, your home will be cleaner, you’ll be less stressed, and everyone will be happier. Trust me.
  • Helpful hints to effectively clean up the misfires. The system provides detailed instructions on clever concoctions that will effectively and permanently clean accident areas so you never know they existed.

Also there are 4 bonus guides to boost your knowledge of caring for your cat:

    • Cat Training Bible
    • 101 Recipes for a Healthy Cat
    • The Cat Care Blueprint
    • Pet Medical Recorder Software

An affordable and easy system to follow. Nothing in this system is overly expensive or difficult to execute. It also comes with a 60-day money back guarantee.

Colin’s Notes

This system may not be the perfect solution for 100% of cases (of bad cat behaviors), but it worked for me. Results may differ, and it is important to follow the instructions carefully for fast results.

There is no risk in trying out this product. With a no questions asked money-back guarantee, if things don’t work out as you expected you get your money back.
