1. Jug Watering Can

Recycle an old milk or juice jug to create your own watering can, the best part about it - besides being so inexpensive- it is totally customizable! Simply use a big or a small needle to make the holes, according to your needs.

For houseplant this time! Line your pots with a coffee filter to stop the soil from falling through any hole (like the small drainage ones).

10. Self Watering Table 

This hack is a little bit more pricey and will cost around $100. This hack will allow the plants to get water as needed from the bottom part. That will prevent under or over watering!


11. Test Your Seeds

If you are not sure that your seeds are still good, dampen a paper towel with warm water. Then, place some seeds from the packet and fold the paper towel. Keep the paper towel dampen for a few days and look for some sprouting!


12. Foam Peanuts Hack 

Improve the drainage of plants by adding foam peanuts to half the bottom of your pot. Then cover with a landscape fabric and the rest with potting soil.

13. Plastic Forks 

To keep animals to use the garden as their personal toilet,  insert a few plastic forks all throughout your garden! This will discourage them. 


14. Plant Starters

A very easy way to start your seeds is using eggshells! Wash and boil the eggshells then fill with soil and put them back in their egg carton.
