How do you make a hanging garden out of a plastic bottle?
To start you off on your hanging garden, you will need some essential materials as listed below:
- Four plastic bottles. Old two-liter soda bottles are perfect.
- A skewer
- Hardened paper. An old cereal box will do just fine.
- A pair of scissors
- Gardening soil. You can get this from a flower store or dig some dirt from your yard.
- Seedlings. You have a wide selection to choose from when you visit your local gardening store.
Cut the bottles horizontally on one side and remove the extra piece. The final result should resemble a water trough like the one used by animals on farms.
The plants will grow out from here, and it needs to be large enough for you to be able to work. The area between the neck of the bottle and the base is large enough for this space. Ensure the bottle cap is still on to prevent the soil from draining out once you fill it in
Poke holes along the side and base of the container to provide drainage holes. Pass the string through the holes closest to the ends.
These will be used to hang your garden. Line the interior of the bottle with the paper and then fill in the gardening soil.
Transplant your seedlings into the new garden and then add the required amount of water. Hand the plastic garden to whatever area that you see fit around your home.
Which plants can be grown in bottles?
Herbs and spices such as coriander and basil, make for excellent plastic garden plants. They root easily and do not require much care once they are established.

SourceYou can create a self-watering garden by using other smaller bottles. Drill some small holes into the cap of the small bottle and insert it upside down into the soil of your garden.
The water will slowly slip into the garden as the plants need it. Only refill the bottle once the water runs out.
