Spice Herb Ball Planter

Picture of Spice Herb  Ball Planter
This a picture of a large plastic ball i have no idea where it came from but i used a circle drill bit and filled it with dirt and inserted a variety of herbs and spices.

i also took a small pipe and stuck it into the middle all the way to the bottom so that the water could drain to the bottom.

HUH!!!
I missed that to....I think....

Pipe, I assume would be PVC with holes drilled so water can "leach" into dirt....????

Do you water through this pipe???

No i pour the water in the top hole, the pipe is to drain the water down into the bottom of the ball so all the water doesn't spill out through the holes where the plants are
I don't understand why you would need a pipe in the middle to allow water to drain, the water can't get INTO the pipe, unless you pour the water into it & have holes at intervals to allow the water to drain into the soil....?
