Corky Wednesdays: wine corks in the garden
I love to garden. Over the years I have come across ideas for using old wine corks in the garden. Here’s a few of my favorites:
Cork is a natural material that acts as a surface protector and is great for absorbing moisture. Cork trays, trivets and large coasters make great table top plant stands.
Some gardeners use wine cork as their gardening pots! Corks make tiny gardens for succulents and air plants.

Wine corks can be turned into adorable garden markers!
Here’s a cork garden marker tutorial by Country Woman Magazine (It’s so easy you really don’t need a tutorial).
Other wine cork tips for gardening:
~ Wine corks can be used as mulch in potted plants or small beds. Cork is a natural product, so it will break down over time.
~ Put corks on the ends of prickly cactus when little ones are around. Or place corks on the ends of sharp tools like a pitch fork.
~ Used wine corks can be glued to old gardening pots and planters for a fresh new look.
~ Turn your wine corks into a bird house!
See you next week with some indoor wine corking ideas.
