Baster Watering for Hanging Potted Plants

By: Danny Lipford

Consistent watering is crucial to container plants and hanging plants in particular. However, reaching a hanging basket is often difficult without drenching yourself in the process. A simple kitchen baster may be the perfect solution. Not only will the baster allow you to neatly put the water where you want it, but you can also be fairly exact about how much water you deliver to the plant.

    Thanks so Much for idea to use a kitchen base or to water the plants that are high. My sister lives in a facility would like to water her plants that are hanging up and I couldn’t figure out how to help her. This will help a lot I think I will buy a couple of them for others in the facility to help water plants this will help and keep busy. Great idea
