If, like so many of us, you find it hard to remember to water your plants or are worried how they will get watered when you are away there is an inexpensive, creative solution.

Plant Nanny has created an ingenious method of recycling wine bottles into a drip irrigation device with just a terracotta stake.

The stakes are designed to release the correct amount of water into the soil as needed providing a constant supply of water to your plants.

As the soil absorbs the water the Plant Nanny releases more into the roots as opposed to watering the surface meaning your plants receive a better drink!

To use the Plant Nanny wine bottle stake set all you need to do is dig a hole next to the plant and place the stake in the hole. Then just pop the wine bottle filled with water into the stake and you are ready to go. It’s as simple as that!

Each stake is intended to water a large container plant and can be used anywhere.

Depending on the weather conditions and local environment it will only need to be refilled every few days meaning you can forget about those daily watering chores.

The beauty of having the wine bottle sticking out the top of the stake is the fact you can easily see how much water remains.

This visual clue is really useful to the more forgetful amongst us. I think most of us have at least one plant that we always manage to forget!
