Neat way to keep potted plants watered

This really works! I loved having impatiens on my front porch but I never seemed to be able to water them enough....

I filled an empty wine bottle (any bottle would do) with water and turned it upside down so the mouth of the bottle was in the soil. It has to be pushed down into the soil a bit. The water leaves the bottle as the soil dries. It worked so well for the impatiens I now have one in all my potted plants.

Life made simplier.  BTW, I always thought they were called impatients until I googled them. LOL

BTW, found this cute tea cup pot at Kmart.
