28 Recycled Garden Ideas

Everyone loves a bargain, but gardeners are an especially resourceful bunch. Reuse odds and ends (you may already have around the house) with these recycled garden ideas!

Pantyhose

Got a run? Don’t toss torn pantyhose—they’re great garden helpers.

  1. When planting containers, place pantyhose on the bottom of the pots so water can pass through, but not soil.
  2. Store out-of-season flower bulbs in a pantyhose leg and hang in a cool, dry place.
  3. Cut pantyhose in strips and use to tie up and stake plants.
  4. Push growing melons into pantyhose legs and tie them to a support off the ground to eliminate rot, mold and insect invasion.
  5. Slip pantyhose over flower heads and secure with twist ties to collect their seeds.
