DIY Easy Recycled Seedling Waterer

As I’m sure all you gardeners know, watering little seedlings can be a little difficult at times…

Our Feverfew seedlings

Just a bit too much water pressure–and you’ll knock them right over or drown them! 😦 Spray bottles sometimes work nicely, but it can take a while to sufficiently moisten the soil, and even the gentle spray is more than some of the very delicate seedlings can handle.

But no more! Presenting…my brother’s latest invention! πŸ˜€

See the light radiating from it? πŸ˜‰

Kiss your seedling watering worries goodbye with this little baby! Here’s all you need to make your own:

  • A milk jug or similar plastic container
  • A straw
  • A drill or screwdriver
  • A hot glue gun

Simply punch or drill a suitable sized hole in the cap of the jug for your straw, glue around the edges of the straw to seal it, and shazam!

Slowly tip your bottle for the perfectly pressured stream!

Thanks bro–you’re a genius! πŸ˜‰

Hope this helps all fellow gardeners! πŸ™‚
