In the clip, she removes the seeds from a red pepper and puts them into a soil-filled plant pot.
She then covers the seeds with more soil before pouring water on top.
And after just two weeks, the seeds have begun to spout.
Leah said in the caption: “Save your pepper seeds and plant them!
“Delighted to see a few sprouts starting to come up!”
And a number of her followers commented underneath to share their thoughts.
One said: “You don’t have to dry them out first or wait until they sprout in a wet paper towel?”
And Leah replied: “I didn’t. Literally just popped them straight into the soil and they did their thing.
“If you want to store them they would need to be dried.”
Someone else said: “I can’t believe how well mine have grown.”
Leah commented underneath: “Me either! My pots fell over, and I just scooped them back up, and they still grew.”
The average price of a red pepper is just 85 cent or 60 pence – and by planting the seeds within it you get way more value for your money.
Meanwhile, another savvy gardening guru has revealed a super quick and easy hack that’ll help transform your outdoor haven in no time.
Green-fingered Nikki (@nikkiplantsthings) shared the super simple way she speeds up the process of potting plants – and it really couldn’t be easier.
In the clip, she begins by filling the bottom of her large planter with soil.
She then removes the pots from the plants she’s previously purchased and places the pots on the soil in the large planter.
Next, she piles in more soil so the top of the plant pots are covered.
After giving them a splash of water to dampen the soil, she carefully removes the pots, allowing her to then simply slot the plants into the indents left behind – and voilà!
Nikki captioned the post: “I LOVE this potting hack…especially for large pots! Simple, quick and easy!”
The video has since gone viral, garnering a whopping 2.4 million views and hundreds of comments from very impressed social media users.
