Diapers for Potted Plants

Before planting your hanging baskets, window boxes, or tomato plants go and buy cheap pack of diapers, open one up, and place in the bottom of the container.

I use two, side by side, in hanging baskets. Put them plastic side down. This will absorb the water that is placed in the basket or containers and keep the soil moist ensuring that the roots are always moist

There is a thing called vermiculite that I mix with soils, that hold water really well, but the diaper is a good idea, too. I think I'll use both for plants that don't like to b dry.
