Space Filling Tip

I was talking with a customer the other day and we were discussing what you can put in the bottom of very large and or tall containers. I had mentioned putting old pots upside down to take up space or to even save packing peanuts and place them in the bottom of your pots. Both are light weight options and will save on potting soil. Then this customer said ” How about if I save my empty plastic water bottles and fill the bottom of my pot with those?”  Brilliant idea I told her! Water bottles so often do not end up in the proper recycling stations. So why not recycle them in your planters! Light weight, space filler, genius idea!

Thanks Barb for this tip!
