I like plants in containers; I just hate watering them. But instead of spending money on an Aqua Globe (As seen on TV!) I followed a friend’s lead and got out some cobalt blue bottles I’ve been saving (I swear someday I’ll add the bottle tree to my list of yard projects, I swear), filled them with water, inverted them in the soil, and voila — free, instant automatic waterers. The blue glass makes them look cute, too, at least as far as I’m concerned. More reviews of automatic watering devices at AT. –Mary T.
