About Ups-A-Daisy Planter Inserts

After the cost of the pot, the second biggest cost associated with container gardening is the potting soil that you use. Unless you fill the bottom of the pot with foam peanuts or something else you have to fill the entire pot with potting soil. The Ups-A-Daisy planter inserts reduce the expense of gardening. Since they fit halfway down the pot you use less potting soil in your container gardens. Another benefit is that you can purchase the expensive potting soils mixes instead of skimping and buying the cheaper kinds since you'll need less potting soil than normal.
