We've already shown you several ways to keep your plants watered and hydrated while you're away, but using a garbage bag is the quickest and easiest method we've seen, and it turns the covered area into a mini, self-sustaining greenhouse.
You'll want to use clear garbage bags so that sunlight can still filter through, and it's a good idea to stick a wooden dowel rod in the planter so that the garbage bag doesn't touch the plant.
