EXTRA RE-USE TIP/ ALTERNATIVE IDEA for stones at base of pots
I'd like to tell everyone of my new method for creating a real good long lasting and very drainable base for inside any new plants I pot up. (mostly my small ones).
Firstly you've got to eat a lot of nuts like I do.
But since vegan is becoming popular there's probably quite a lot of nut lovers around.
I thought a few years ago what a waste putting all my pistachio shells straight in the bin or wherever. They seemed too hard (hard as rock) to be recyclable or compostable even.
I searched and researched about it for quite a while.
Now I save them up on kitchen worktop in a smart little container.
.....Transfer to the garage......
Then use all pistachio shells for my base layer with even a few big stones sometimes. It is a great idea, I was told so when I relayed it to a rose lecturer at a local garden centre talk. She loved it and said she'd not heard of it before. So I thought I'd spread it on here .
