2016 GARDENER’S IDEA BOOK
Collect Your Materials
- A water garden appropriate plant
- A black plastic liner pot
- One large rock that fits in the bottom of the pot
- A few handfuls of small decorative rocks
Weigh it down
Place the large rock into the bottom of your liner pot.
This will anchor the pot in the water garden and keep it from floating to the top.
Place Your Plant
Put the selected plant into the liner pot over the rock.
Press It Down
Press down the soil around the plant to make sure the plant is secure in the liner pot. This helps to prevent loose soil from floating to the top of your water garden.
Add decorative stones over the compressed soil to
help weigh down the container further, prevent loose soil from floating, and to add a nice design element.
If you wish to use a specific container in your water garden, simply place the liner pot in it, and cover with more decorative rocks!
