All it takes is a few holes poked in the bottom for drainage (if desired). It’s a garden hack that not only benefits your garden, but it also helps YOU from becoming calcium deficient!

Vacation Plant Watering with Wine Bottles

Don’t have a house-sitter to take care of all your house plants and container plants outside? Don’t panic! Grab a wine bottle (if it’s not empty, drink that wine up!), rinse it clean, and fill it with water. If you’re feeling extra motivated, you can even mix in a little plant fertilizer. Then quickly flip the bottle upside down and jam it into the soil. Voila! Your plants will receive a steady soak from the bottle while you’re gone. Just don’t vacation too long, or your plants might chug all the bottles dry!

You’ll get to eat the fresh leaves and you’ll have a great shot at regrowing more of them from the stump.

Use Pot in Pot Planting to Swap Vegetables and Flowers in Your Landscape

Dig a hole for a pot just slightly larger than the planted pot you’ll be using. Make sure both pots have adequate drainage holes. For enhanced drainage, apply a layer of gravel below the in-ground outer pot. Using several of these enables you to quickly change your landscaping, for veggies, flowers and other plants.
