Fill Planters with Packing Peanuts

Martha Stewart Living, June 2010

Don't throw out the foam peanuts or bubble packing material the next time you get a box in the mail; put them to use. 

When filling outdoor planters, sub the packing material for up to half the soil. The plant won't know the difference, the container will be lighter, and you'll use less soil. Place the packing material in a plastic bag at the bottom of the pot, and cover with the soil.
