Quick Tip – Garden/Container Greenhouse Drainage

Here’s an easy way to create drainage holes in plastic disposable food containers. These containers come in all sizes and make perfect miniature greenhouses for stem cuttings and seed sowing, but creating drainage holes can be tricky. I’ve found that if I lay the container on the lawn to use as a stabilizer, an ice pick (screwdrivers and nails work great too) will easily pierce the plastic when hit with a hammer without tearing the bottom into shreds.

There you have it! Perfect drainage in less than five minutes with a minimum of fuss. Happy Gardening!

      You would laugh at me if you saw me twisting and turning my head to try and see that imp. I’ll keep looking. It is odd looking stuff.

          I love it…I see faces in everything, carpets, stains on walls, grass, on and on and on…and oh of course, the clouds! Great shapes and faces in clouds.
