Soft plastic toilet bowl cleaner bottles with the curved neck are just perfect as a hanging plant watering bottle as the curved neck and the small tip allow you to control just how much water comes out. I have also decoupaged these bottles after taking off the label. Do be sure and wash them out very well before using.

Keeping moisture in you hanging baskets an large pots, I use the giant Pampers to line the baskets an pots. They hold lots of moisture, and your plants will thank you for the kindness.

I also cut the Pampers in strips and use them to keep plants and cuttings moist in the mail. Package the roots in the dampened pamper. Make a pocket an put masking tape around it. Put aluminum foil over it, place it in a plastic baggie, leaving the tops out. I use a margarine lid to keep the plants straight.
