We've all heard of upside down gardening
. The idea is a simple one. The PVC hanging planter acts as a greenhouse and when you water your plants, the moisture goes directly to the roots, helping to accelerate growth. And the best thing is, you can grow your own fresh vegetables
no matter where you live, even on an apartment balcony or a tiny townhouse lot.
Personally, I've always been a seedling's worst nightmare and it isn't because I don't try. I just don't have that elusive something that it takes to raise a struggling plant to maturity. If, on the other hand, you'd like to try something like this, you may be interested in the upside down gardening planters that are now being sold at Dollarama
for two bucks each.
There are two different planters, one for growing tomatoes and other vegetables and one that's strictly for show that will, with the right kind of flowers, attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your backyard. Both are "As Seen on TV" products called "Topsy-Turvy
®" and cost only $2 each.
