Do You Have Plants That Need Consistent Watering?

By daylilydreams

I recently planted a Ligularia Desdemona that needed a bit more consistent watering where it is planted. While trying to figure out how to meet the needs of this plant, I came up with an idea when I spotted a empty juice container to be recycled. I know other plants sometimes require consistent water and I decided to share my idea as it may be helpful to others.

I was given a somewhat similar tip from a guy in Holland with an allotment (his 'lottie'). When he plants vegetable transplants, he buries an up-ended 2 liter bottle next to the root ball, cuts off the bottom of the bottle & puts water in it. It is a more effective way of watering the garden, keeps water off the leaves & saves water.
