going to make a path through the garden with this idea

I so need to try this. When I was in the Master Gardener program we used the water crystals in planters and I knew it was the same thing in diapers, but it never crossed my mind to put a diaper in the bottom of one. Someone else said, "The trick to amazing potted plants - diapers. I did this in my hanging baskets last year and they rocked all season."

My allotment neighbour has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, he pushes the bottom end into a small potato, which he believes keeps the cuttings moist as they develop  roots. It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works. Try it, and let us know how you get on.

Fairy door - am definitely adding this to the garden this spring

Great tip! Before gardening/yard work, drag your nails across a bar of soap, claw-like. The soapy buildup will protect the area under the nail bed from a soily invasion. Once you are done mucking about in the dirt you’ll find that washing up is a breeze!

Disney world does this! Lowes sells the 4 to 6″ round PVC pipe with holes already drilled. Purchase an end cap, fill with rock, soil, and plant. I will often put these in the center of a very large pot to stabilize, and add amazing height and color to a container that has trailing plants (no end cap or rock needed if you are placing in a container) @ Pin Your Home
