Hints and Tips

INFORMATION FOR ALL GARDENERS WHO POT UP THEIR TUBS. Water retaining granules are expensive and you need a lot.The following tip is brilliant and works, because I have used this method in my tubs. Take a babies nappy, or an incontinence pad…any make, or brand so cheapest you can find. Take the cotton like wadding out of the pad and discard the outer. Place the wadding in a large basin or (bucket) as I used a few….cover the wadding in water and see it turn into gel, just keep adding water until all the wadding has swollen up. You can then mix it with your compost and it helps retain the water in your tubs and planters. It really does work and is a lot less expensive than the gardeners type and just as harmless to your plants. Happy Gardening
