Do your basil plants die ?
Are you sick of buying new ones from the supermarket or garden centre?
If so, why not make a simple self-watering pot from a plastic bottle that delivers the right amount of water to the right place , the roots . Watering around stems just rots them .
You’ll need a plastic bottle, a scrap of felt or similar, scissors, a plant , soil and water .
Cover up the plastic on your self-watering pot.
You’ll need a selection of green and brown acrylic paints , brushes , water pots, tissue and card or paper .
