Question by runninlola: In gardening, what does it mean exactly to “pinch tips” or “pinch stems”?
I have started a little herb garden, and these are common instruction and since I’ve never “gardened” before, I have no idea what this means.

Hi. It means exactly that- to pinch them off, rather than using some sort of tool to cut them off. So to pinch the tips, you would be looking to find the new, very top growth (called terminal growth) at the tip of a stem and pinch if off. Then on some plants, even the stems themselves are soft enough to just pinch off. Both of these are useful when growing herbs, because you want as many branches per plant as possible, because more bushy plants are more sturdy, and they tend to produce more useable cuttings of herbs…pinching the tips or the stems themselves usually results in the plant putting out 2 or more stems in place of the removed tip/stem.

Question by ShanieBoi: Is there any working “All NAtural Herbal” Body clensers out there that you can make at home?
Answer by dave
Any diet of fresh fruit and vegetables with plenty of fibre will do this.
‘Body cleansers’ (unless made of soap!) are a total scam.
