Gardening Hack #1 – Use Sponges for Plant Hydration
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you have a less-than-green thumb…You’re too busy or just forgot to water and suddenly you realize your plants you cared for up to this point are either dead or dying. We’ve all been there and it’s okay to make a few mistakes. Here’s a simple hack to avoid this in the future.
It is important to make sure that all plants are properly watered and wet sponges can help you through the hottest of summers. Consider adding some cut up sponges to the bottom of each of your potted plants. This can provide your plants with a steady supply of water without over or under watering them.
If you’re gardening in rows or even raised beds, you can make use of a radical gardening concept called Hugelculture to get a similar effect. With hugelculture, you bury sticks, logs, grass clippings or any other organic matter that will hold water a foot or two below the soil you plant in.
It may sound a bit crazy but if you get hugelculture right, it will work just as well as those sponges you added to your flower pots. Next up, we’re going to look at how a photo album of all things can help you garden better.
