Introducing: mini greenhouses made from clear umbrellas as a tiny dome for your herbs, succulents, and other greenery.

According to SimpleMost, it’s an incredibly useful and cost-efficient alternative, especially for those with a smaller yard or garden as it doesn’t take up as much space as a full-blown greenhouse.

Depending on the size of your umbrella, you can cover up plants in a small pot, a barrel, or a small parcel in the ground.

Another nifty trick is to pull off the hook from your umbrella so that you can easily stake it into the dirt so that it’s secure.

The idea has taken social media by storm as more and more people embrace the DIY trend in hopes of extending the season for some of their favorite plants.

It’s also helpful if you’re located in areas that have been experiencing intense summer storms that may cause damage to your thriving plants.

Check out the fun ways people are using them:

You can find clear umbrellas at the dollar store or snag them in bulk on Amazon.
