20 Insanely Clever Gardening Tips And Ideas-- Plastic Pot Watering System--Place a sink pot (empty plastic nursery pot with holes) in the middle of your garden to create a well for easier and deeper root watering.

Self made Miracle Grow. Put Epsom salts and sugar into each hole with your plant. It makes them grow larger, leafier and greener, use about 1 Tablespoon in a 1 to 1 ratio but I don’t really measure it. You can also dissolve 1 Tablespoon into a gallon of water and use it to water your plants, trees, fruit trees, roses, flowering plants, squash,... all veggies. If you have already planted I would sprinkle around the plant and water it in good. :)

Copper snail and slug tape. This is a great way to keep both slugs and snails off your potted plants without having to resort to using chemicals. It is a self adhesive that should be stuck to the sides of the pot to form a complete circle. It creates a small electrical charge that is further intensified by the serrated edge. It is safe to use around pets and wildlife, and is environmentally friendly - but not so friendly towards the slugs and snails in your garden.
