  5. What are all these weird comments? Cute gardens. FYI - whoever typed this blog “instillation”of a garden piece is “installation”. Instillation is pouring or injecting a substance drop by drop. ... In the instillation of ear drops, keep your ear tilted up and drop two or three drops into the ear. Instillation is pouring or injecting a substance drop by drop. Where installation is the setting of something in place. Not trying to be a smart you know what but kids and other folks etc will copy and continue the wrong use.
