I’m about to begin a little gardening experiment. When I realized I had some spare packing peanuts on my hands, I vaguely remembered hearing something about using them in gardening, so I looked up uses for packing peanuts online.
I came across packingpeanuts.org. An entire website devoted to packing peanuts. I would say I was surprised, but you can find anything online these days. Anyway, I thought the site had some interesting tips. And, I was correct in my inclination to connect packing peanuts to gardening–apparently putting them at the bottom of a pot provides drainage space for plants.
Oh, the things you can learn.
