    My garden hacks:
    Use J cloths to line pots of any size.
    To reduce the weight of heavy to move pots, use chunks of polystyrene packaging instead of stone or terracotta crocks. The type used to protect washing machines etc is ideal
    When creating a border, include narrow pathways to make it easier to reach the back without damaging plants. Flat rocks, pebbles or even old bricks work well

    Found some really great tips, Cat! I especially like that all the hacks are in one place in form of an infographic – that way it`s easier when you want to remind yourself something, thanks!
