DIY Drip Irrigation System, Made from Plastic Bottles. The 'system' is super simple. All we have to do is grab some 2-liter plastic bottles, punch 2 holes into the sides and 2 into the bottom, and plant said bottles next to our plants. Fill them with water and our plants will get that slow watering they prefer. For more information about the project, visit Fine Craft Guild.

"Dirty" secret revealed. When potting plants, put a dispsosable diaper in the bottom of the pot to help retain moisture. Put a coffee filter in the very bottom to keep soil from falling through the hole in the pot's bottom, then put rocks and bark, then the diaper, then the potting soil. Be sure to cut a few holes in the outside of the diaper to allow some drainage. Last of all, plant your pretty flowers and add a little slow release plant food!
