I've searched most of the morning, trying to figure out where I found this idea and finally this afternoon I found it. Click Here if you wish to see it where I saw it. I really think I saw it on Pinterest but for the life of me can't find it there.
Hanging Herb Garden using Recycled Soda Bottles
|My beginning attempt|
The only items you need are:
2 liter pop bottles
Twine (baler or poultry string)
Basically, you just cut a hole in the top starting it with a knife then finishing it with scissors. On the bottom I cut a few small slits to let excess water drain out.
To hang it I took the sharp tip of the knife and made a circular hole to poke the twine through and tied enough knots to make it big enough so it wouldn't pull through under the weight of the soil and water. I did the same thing to hang the second bottle to the top bottle. On the small neck part I just tied the string around the small area instead of worrying about cutting a hole.
Fill with soil, add seeds of choice and water.
Hang where ever you have space. For now mine is hanging on the outside light of the front door. I will move it when I find a wall or put up privacy fence. I plan on adding more bottles as I get them.
If you would like to make it look nice you could paint them. I just may do that later also if I find time.
Happy Herb Gardening
