From pots to pH-balanced soils, plant lovers know how just expensive it can be to raise a plant family. However, you don’t always have to break the bank when you’re welcoming a new plant into your home. Here’s 5 ways to minimise costs on your home garden essentials so that you can continue splurging on your favorite succulents and hanging plants. Repurpose Old Containers As Pots & Planters While pots that cost less than S$5 are readily available at many nurseries like at Ikea and Noah Garden Center, you’ll find that costs will begin to accumulate as you bring more plants into your home. This is especially true if you buy larger plants that require wider pots, as prices start to increase by 86%. To save money on your plant housing, you can consider repurposing old household and kitchen containers as small pots and planters for your new additions.
