Oh, My Cactus!
Are you tired of your boring cactus desk? Well, this one’s a variant for your potted cactus. Hang them up using small plastic bottles.
Cactus, succulent, and other small growing plants can also sit in this eco-friendly plastic bottle pots. You can also add some decoration on the bottle before hanging them with a string or yarn on your porch.
NOTE: Make sure that you don’t forget to punch or drain holes on your plastic bottles, otherwise your plants may have too much water.
Wall Mounted Bottle Garden
Bushy trailing plants such as lettuce, strawberries, and other same plants can hide the bottle garden structure. Of course, you need plastic bottles as your container. Large soda bottles are perfect for this.
Cut out the top half of the bottle. Then stick the bottle on a strong cloth strip which will serve as the backbone of the bottles. Line up the bottles up to the last part of the cloth. Once done – you can start sitting in your plants.
As your plants grow, these will imitate a green wall effect that adds aesthetic appeal to your bare wall. Isn’t it such a space saver right!
Wall Herb Garden
On this idea, you are going to use a wooden plank that has your desired size., plastic bottles (the top part where the cap is sided), nails, hooks, and a hammer. First, make sure that the plank is sized to your desire. You can cut it ta fit into your available space near your kitchen window.
Then you need to cut off the body and bottom part of the plastic bottle. Once done – nail the bottle’s top part onto the wooden plank. Arrange them in equal distance. After that, you are good to go on planting your herbs. Hang this on your desired wall. Herbs such as parsley, basil, and mint are a perfect fit on this vertical garden.
Hanging Plastic Bottles on Net
If you already have a garden but you want to add more plants, a hanging plastic bottle on your Net is the idea for you. This is another excellent idea for a vertical garden. You can use medium size juice or soda plastic bottles. Cut an opening on the bottle’s body. Just make sure to keep the top part.
Punch a hole on the bottom and on the cap of the bottle. Then insert a string through it. Connect the bottles through one string. Once done, hang them on your garden net and your good to go on planting.
Inverted Half Plastic Bottle Garden on a Wooden Frame
This time, you can use a 2-liter soda plastic bottle. Cut the bottles in half and use the neck side. Turn them upside down them attached them on a vertical wooden frame. Arrange your bottle parallel to each other vertically so that when you water them, the water drains down to the last bottle below.
Another great space saver idea is here! You can use 2-liter plastic bottles of sodas. First, cut out the bottom part. Then poke holes on the bottle’s neck – this will serve as the drain holes. Position the bottle upside down. This kinda imitates the inverted half plastic bottle garden. The only difference is that this is not attached to a wooden frame.
Once you prepared all the bottles, you can start planting your seeds on it one by one. Then you insert one bottle to another bottle upside down that is filled with soil already. Making them look like a tower. Make sure that as you tower them higher, you keep them still with some wires. If you put them up against a wall, try to attach at least the middle bottle to the wall.
These are just a few of the space saver garden ideas you can do out of plastic bottles. Hopefully, these had given you a chance to create that garden you always wanted to even at a small space.
Happy garden bottling!!!
