Anybody you know got a couple of diapers
that they aren't using that you know of???
Just might work, you know me and my experiments..
Take two diapers and dig a hole, one on either
side of it, reasonably deep... say at least 12"
or so...take a diaper, and maybe some landscape fabric...****cause the diaper will eventally fall
apart from holding soooooo much water..and the crystals will come out, but if it's incased in
something to hold the diaper together...
Or if you can find some of those polymer crystals,
**You can find those, I think~at craft stores even** and dig a hole, *have them filled with water first, put them in the container, and fill with water, let them soak it up for at least a few hours..
Then drop them in the hole...
Don't do it so it's right next to the plant
I'd say 10" off the drip line of it now...
That'll keep water in those, when you can't get out to water...and if it rains, they'll soak up and hold that water..
