It’s been hot. Really hot. It’s the time of year where pots, even large ones, need to be watered twice a day. I have two coco-lined planters that I just can’t keep from drying out when the temperatures are in the 90’s day after day. A few years ago my friend, Miss Char from Grace and Favor, shared a tip with me that really works: fill empty wine bottles with water and simply insert into the soil. The water will slowly drip out, giving your plants the water they need during extra hot and dry summer temperatures.
If you are going away for a night or two and don’t want to bother a neighbor to water your plants, give this trick a try. It really works!
