Maintaining a beautiful garden is a lot of hard work, but you can labour more efficiently—and put less strain on the pursestrings—with these brilliant gardening tips.

Have plants (especially vegetables) that do better if the moisture is delivered at their roots instead of from overhead?  One cheap and simple way to make a drip feeder which you can place underground next to your plant is by using an old plastic soda bottle.  Just puncture some holes in it (a barbeque skewer works great), and then plant it next to the young plant.  The bottle will enable a slow release of water near the roots.  This method prevents fungus and also reduces problems with leaves.  Check out the source for detailed, in-depth instructions.  Later on we’ll share some more ideas which are similar to this one and which are great for other applications.
