Recycling compost bags to retain water in hanging baskets

With a drought warning and a hosepipe ban in the UK I line my hanging baskets with compost bags turned inside out to retain water.

Fill, water then allow the compost to settle before trimming around the top with scissors. Pierce a few small holes in the side to prevent waterlogging.
