The soil in my native plant containers often becomes too dry and the water drains immediately out the bottom, no matter how slowly I try to add the water. Sometimes I resort to filling an empty plastic tub with about 6 inches of water and placing the plant container in it for a couple of hours. But this method is hard on me physically, because the containers are rather large and heavy, especially after the soil finally gets moist.
I have about 20 containers now scattered throughout my yard.
Any body have a better idea?
