Diaper Gardening



Check out these baskets! 
These have been on my deck for around ten years.
Everything,
every plant imaginable,
has been tried in them.
Total failure!
Nothing would grow!
The water would run out over the top,
through the bottom,
they just could not hold water.
So frustrating!
Then I saw it!
(can't remember where)
A diaper in the bottom of the pot,
under the dirt.
Perfect!
 
They are growing like crazy!

well that is one way to garden and if it works that's great. I have used those pots before and used a plastic bag to line it and then made a few pin holes in it so it could drain a bit if we got to much rain.

who would have thought. I'm assuming that's a disposable diaper?

Yep, diaper holds the water and also you can line them with plastic to hold the water. Oh and they are beautiful.
