Water Outdoor Plants While on Vacation

To water outside plants while on vacation, simply bury a piece of yarn beside of plant and run the other end of yarn into a bucket of water. Presto! The plants will absorb water as needed. Happy gardening!

Does it matter if the yarn is cotton (which is more absorbent) or will regular worsted ACRYLIC yarn do?

---> Have you actually tried this? Or did someone tell you it works? Thank you for posting this! ...It's a wonderful & original idea!

I haven't ever tried it myself but have heard from several different sources that it worked.I have used yarn to start plants because it stayed moist for days after moistening.
