I was digging in the garden today and found this
I haven't got a clue what it is
Anybody know ?

Isn't it one of those decorative glass balls that sticks in pots?

It's not a solar light, is it?

Looks like a Christmas bauble 🎄

A Christmas decoration?

No idea! Looks like fragile glass so surprised you dug it up!? Is it glass...?

You will then with water and put them into pot plants so the water slowly releases into them so you don’t need to water them as often.

Yes its glass

Taddda Thu 26-Mar-20 16:26:06

Oooo a gazing ball!? Nice...smile

Where did the genie go?

It's one of teose watering thingies isn't it. The ones that you fill with water and then stick in a plantpot.

Taddda Thu 26-Mar-20 16:27:44

Rub it!

Eeeeek2 Thu 26-Mar-20 16:28:30

It's for watering a pot

booearing Thu 26-Mar-20 16:28:43

Thankyou I think Selfsettling3 is right I've looked it up and it looks like it
Can tell I'm not into gardening grin

It goes the other way up, you stick the spike in the ground near a plants roots and fill the ball with water, then it self waters in summer or if you go away.

Slow-release watering system for plants?

Taddda Thu 26-Mar-20 16:41:22

Never fails to impress me how good (and fast!) MNers are at this....grin

looks like its stalk is broken so it wont work as well quite common for this to happen plastic bottles work as well but not as pretty (on bottle block a bit with tissue paper & bury the end in damp soil
(been out in the garden planting seeds -for feeding the wildlife especially snails no doubt - aha - I can order beer you little blighters)
