Here's a unique way to get your seedlings going for spring, courtesy of Jay Erb, chairman of the North Coventry Township Parks & Recreation Commission, using one of our very own plastic water bottles!
Follow Jay's step-by-step instructions complete with pictures to guide you:
1.) Start with an empty PAHWF water bottle
2.) Cut the bottle in half
3.) Drill a hole in the cap
4.) Insert a piece of yarn in the hole
5.) Fill the top of the bottle with potting soil
6.) Fill the bottom of the bottle with water
7.) Place the top of the bottle inside the bottom of the bottle
8.) Plant seeds for your garden indoors and allow the yarn to wick water into the potting soil and keep the seeds moist
Thank you, Jay, for sharing this creative way to welcome spring!
