: You can knock a small opening in the side of a clay pot, or even stack a few bricks to make a small shelter. Toads will be attracted to the shelter, use it during the day and claim it as their territory coming back year after year. Each night one toad can eat up to 100 slugs, grubs, grasshoppers, tomato beetles, cutworms...anything you don't want eating your garden. The tadpoles also eat mosquito larvae!
Want to conserve water but still want to make sure you aren't under-watering your garden? Want to establish a simple greenhouse irrigation system? Clay pot irrigation can save 50-70% of water without depriving your plants.
Scroll over halfway down on this site's page, passed the first pic of the bird bath, to find instructions. "...Flower Pot Bird Bath: Make a Clay Bird bath or Butterfly Sipper in 5 minutes. Make a low-profile lightweight bird bath for your balcony, deck, garden, or porch. All you need are a large clay flower pot and an oversized clay plant drain saucer. Turn the flower pot upside down and place the drain saucer on top. Fill the saucer halfway with water, add a small rock." *Item not for sale.
