    Another way to recycle plastic bottles. Instead of putting rocks in the bottom of big porch planters, she fills the bottom with sealed empty plastic 20 ounce bottles! They give the pot the drainage it needs, without adding all that extra weight! So smart!!

Make your own terra cotta tiered planter. By the end of the summer the ivy was growing down the sides and the flowers were thriving even more! Stack pots on crushed coke cans to create the tiered look and at the same time allowing the water to drain.

use styrofoam peanuts when planting in a large planter. Not so heavy and saves on soil.
