Want a Great Gardening Idea?
Put a Coffee Filter in the Bottom of Your Flowerpots
This idea to line flowerpots with a coffee filter came from the TV show This Old House, and it works great for gardening, but in keeping my eyes open to solutions, it also works great for my zeer pot.
When I made it, I used duct tape to seal the hole in the pot, but the quickly failed.
If you line flowerpots and planters with coffee filters it will stop soil from falling through the drainage hole.
This is an even better gardening tip because the coffee filters are paper, so they will eventually degrade. I line flowerpots with a coffee filter now whenever I pot a plant. It is cheap, and easy, and it reduces the mess of gardening.
I love this kind of simple and effective tip.
Every time I learn a tip like this, I have two thoughts.
- Why did I not think of that?
- I have got to share this amazing idea.
So while I have no answer for my first thought, I can safely say I shared why you should Line Flowerpots with a Coffee Filter. I hope this gardening tip was as useful to you as I fouynd it to be for me.
