The great experiment: I saw this idea on pintrest. Add a super absorbent baby diaper to a hanging basket to retain moisture. Well, if nothing else it will prevent all the water from running right through.
I am thinking that the diaper will wick away the moisture from the roots ... we will see. I'm only
planting one hanging basket this way as a test.
I am planting the basket with petunias. Ai ! look at these seeds. Why are petunia seeds so expensive?
Is it really difficult to harvest the seeds? Maybe they could save some $$ if they didn't put the seeds
in this little plastic container with a flip top.
Would love a comment from any one who has tried the diaper in the basket.
If I start my own hanging basket/pot . I usually seed right into the basket, rather than add transplants.
(that is, if I start early enough). This photo from summer 2011.
