DIY Kokedama String Gardens | Martha Stewart Living - Being a flower school, our students and staff are always on the lookout for the latest trends. Over the last few years, the Japanese art of Kokedama has become increasingly popular. Kokedama means literally, "moss ball," and it's easy to see why! These cute plants have their root systems removed, introduced to new soil, bound and bonsaied into a neat little ball. The greatest part about this DIY project is that anyone can do it!

Jorge Mayet's tree sculptures produced from paper, wire, fabric, and acrylic showcase the ways in which a tree's roots often mimic the branches that sprout above ground. In these suspended works the underground systems are far more expansive than what appears above the earth, showing t

...A great example of why we need to stop labeling things as "weeds," and yanking them out...without thinking about the impact that will have on the environment~

Soda bottle drip feeder for tomatoes. Good trick. The other trick is to use pvc pipe, cut one end at angle, place in ground angled toward roots, fill pvc pipe with rocks or pea  gravel, then water thru pvc pipe. Thus water goes to the root system & doesn't have to go thru top soil or any other obstacles first. :) the bottles are free & we're up-cycling. :)
