Clever Gardening Technique

Bottom Watering
Set your paper pots or other transplants in a shallow tray and put a half inch of water in the tray. The water will wick up into the soil, watering the plants for you, even when you are gone for a few days. You can even add nutrients to the water at a dilute rate to feed the plants gradually as they grow.
