Tip: Foam peanuts in flower pots

Instead of using stones or shells in the base of flower pots I use foam packing peanuts or bubbles. They provide drainage for the soil while making the pot lighter than if I used heavy stones. I move the pots frequently so it's important to me that they're lightweight.
