Hi Friends…..today I wanted to share with you what I have been doing for several years now when it comes to container planting.
2nd…..it will help save your back. You may ask how is that?
First I did paint my terra cotta pots white.
To plant my containers I always have a layer of rocks/gravel to give the plants good drainage.
I put my empty plant containers and my used water bottles to the pots and fill with potting soil. I put 2 more in this container.
Sorry for some reason I didn’t get a photo of all the containers I added. DUH!
Now fill the pot with your potting soil as you normally would.
The pot will take 50% less soil than if you did not use the plastic containers. Add your plants.
I filled 6 pots. Here is one of the plants when first planted.
Fast forward to 4 weeks to today. They have filled out nicely, a little miracle grow helps too!
Do you have container plants? I would love to hear from you in the comments. Let me know what you have in your garden or yard.
I hope your plants and garden are having a great summer. See you soon!
