*Great idea for seed starting: Create a mini greenhouse under a clear umbrella*
Great idea for a simple greenhouse garden, using an old clear plastic umbrella. Keeps the birds out of your garden until plants are strong and sturdy. I need to do this in Spring, when I plan to build a wee herb garden for me to use and my fairy dolls to pose in.
Umbrella greenhouse, go find some cheap clear umbrellas some where :) neat idea
