Great Find for Covering Plants


Good morning everyone. I was at Big Lots yesterday and came across a collapsible mesh laundry hamper for only $8. I decided it would be perfect for covering plants in containers or on the ground, to protect from birds, or from the Phoenix sunshine. It worked out great. I will check the dollar stores and see if I can maybe get more. The $8 one is a nice size, 16 inches in diameter. It even folds away when I don't need it!
This is the bag it comes in if you want to check your local Big Lots

    My mom uses these with newly-planted perennials to give them some shade protection for a few days as they settle into their new homes. They work great and you can use landscape pins to keep them in the ground. I need to see if the Dollar store has some!
