AWESOME LIFE HACKS
Keeping your plants watered while you are away on vacation can be a hassle, especially for plants in containers or those in the ground that require a lot of moisture. If you can’t find a neighbor to give them a daily dousing for you, you might want to try one of the bottle methods. Be sure to test those methods before your vacation to see how long they will keep soil damp in your climate!
Prepare two-liter plastic bottles by making holes in their caps. Hold a small nail so that its tip is at the center of a bottle cap. Tap the head of the nail with the hammer to drive the nail through the cap. Pull the nail out and repeat the process with your other bottles. Alternatively, replace the caps with screw-on funnel-shaped irrigation spikes, available from your garden center, that slow down the release of water from the bottles.
Fill each bottle with water. Screw on either its punctured cap or one of the irrigation spikes.
Water the soil thoroughly before inserting the bottles. Turn the bottle upside-down and push it into the soil beside the plant you wish to water. Make sure the bottle is stable enough that it won’t tip over. Repeat the process with your other bottles.
