      Who knew that by just placing diapers in the bottom of your hanging baskets it will keep plants fresh and remove unwanted moisture that often kills plants! #garden #outdoors #lawn

      A Master Gardener program used the water crystals in planters...the same thing in diapers! Put a diaper in the bottom of your flower pot. Someone else said, "The trick to amazing potted plants - diapers. I did this in my hanging baskets last year and they rocked all season."
