The memory of someone telling us "a how to" can be a lifesaver. Over the years, these tried and true helpful hints have earned a special place in our lives. In the garden, in the kitchen, while out camping and even doing crafts we rely on others experiences to make even the smallest task that much easier.
We hope the hints and tips that we pass along to you are some you may have forgotten about. Perhaps there will be new ones to be kept in the memory bank for later use and to be shared with family and friends.

reverse wick. It releases the water to your rose bushes, tomato plants, saplings and other plants in a very slow
NOTE: Pots may have to be refilled dependant on size and the period of time you will be away.
