Here’s a quick and easy way to water pot plants – without any spills.

Have you ever thought of using ice to water your pot plants?

I heard this tip from a fellow gardener and thought it was a clever way to avoid spilling while watering.

Simply pop a few ice cubes around a plant and you’re done.

Perfect for indoor pot plants

The ice melts and waters the plants slowly and since you don’t have to worry about spills, it’s a great way to water indoor plants.

Defrost the freezer

If you live in a drought-stricken region of South Africa, try this tip when defrosting your freezer. Save all the ice removed from the freezer to water indoor and outdoor plants.

To lessen the number of times plants need to be watered, add mulch – like bark or pebbles. You could also ask your nursery about water-saving gels and powders that can be added to the soil to help retain water.
