    I've recently made a self-watering pot that I found on a link on Gardenstew. You cut a 2 or 3l soda bottle in half, fill the bottom with water and insert the top half upside down into the bottom, having made holes around the neck of the bottle. I already have a cucumber plant started in mine. Bright idea! :setc_080:

    That's it. Maybe even I could manage to start something from seed using that method. :D
