Why spend money on some as seen on TV self watering plant globes? Recycling is free. Fill an empty wine bottle with water and stick it into a potted plant to water it while you are away or just because you are too busy to water. Wine bottles are best because of the long thin neck and the glass is heavy enough to stand up to light winds and not come out.
Clever recycled bottle waterer. I surely never have a problem finding an empty bottle ;-)
My personal fav – wine bottle watering. I have personally tested this one out folks. (I knew my love of red wine was good for something other than, well, my love of red wine!) Water plants thoroughly, rinse an empty wine bottle, (or other glass bottle with a narrow neck) and fill with water. Standing next to your planter, quickly turn over the bottle and push the neck down into the soil near the center of the planter. Make sure the neck is at least several inches underground. The water in the bottle will seep into the soil over several days, keeping the soil evenly moist. It works!
Clever recycled bottle waterer. INGENIOUS! (Could use a beer bottle too for smaller plants!)
