Upside down gardening is an easy-to-maintain process and it is perfect for those of you who are short on ground space. You can easily make some such planters and today we want to give you some tips on how to do it.

First of all, we must say that growing plants upside down has many benefits for you and the plants. Such benefits include eliminating of boring tasks like weeding, tiling or staking plants. Watering is also much easier. And since plants hang above the ground, you don’t need to worry about the fruits touching the soil, which means there are less chances of attacks from pests. Another good thing about the upside down planters is that you can easily make some on your own. And this process won’t cost you much since you can make some out of some recycled items. Here are several step-by-step tutorials that you can use as a guide of how to make these planters.

Wonderful Upside Down Planters

And yes, there is nothing difficult in making such planters. But if you don’t really have time to make some, you can also buy some. They can be found in different designs and colors, and most often have a hook on the bottom to hang them where you want. These pots have an internal water reservoir that distributes moisture to the roots of plants.
