8 Brilliant Hacks To Up Your Gardening Game

Make Your Own Watering Can

The perfect gardening can for watering your plants can be hard to find, not to mention a tad bit expensive. Customize your own by using a leftover container such as a milk jug or empty plastic kitty litter container. Just make sure the inside is clean, poke holes in the top and shower your plants with watery goodness.

Make Your Own Mini-Greenhouse

It’s a rough world out there for a seedling. Give yours their best chance against wind, cold, and intruders by making them mini-greenhouses out of the top of an old 2-liter soda bottle. Just cut the bottom 1/4 off the of the bottle and lower it over your plant. Think twice before tossing smaller soda or water bottles as well. As you’ll see in the next trick, they can come in super handy for saving soil in deep planting pots.

The Deep Planter Soil Saver

If you’ve got a super deep planter you’d like to utilize, don’t feel like you’ve got to fill the entire tub with soil or even line the bottom with rocks. To create better drainage and airflow while reducing the pot’s weight, try lining the bottom with old soda bottles or pool noodles before adding soil.

Make Your Own Garden Markers

There’s nothing more frustrating than finally getting your garden planted, only to forget which seed you planted where! Don’t let it happen to you by making your own fun garden markers. You can use things like colorfully painted rocks, popsicle sticks, or even the tops of broken pots.

Hopefully, these fun and easy gardening hacks will help make life easier for you and whatever you may decide to plant these season. Happy gardening!
