This was an idea that I saw on the Internet somewhere. It looked fabulous and the more we thought about it the more the idea began to grow.
Here in Casinos in the summer months it is just too hot for the strawberries to survive. These planters allow the water to evaporate but it then condenses on the top of the bottle again so the soil stays moister for longer.
What you will need.
3 plastic bottle
Take a plastic bottle and cut a hole in it.
Fill with compost to make the bottle stronger
Tie string around the fat end and double knot
Tie another piece of string to it and double knot
Join it to the second bottle string
Tie a piece of string to the neck of the bottle and run it to the second bottles neck
Take another piece of string, tie to the bottle top and at the end make a loop to hang it with
Repeat at the fat end of the bottle...this will be the top bottle
Should look like this
Next we hung them and then tied on the third bottle
Always double knot or more
You can now plant whatever you want to in your bottles. We put in strawberry plants and hung them outside on the wall.
We are planning on using this method for all our strawberry runners as we can fix yogurt pots to the bottle while the runners root and then plant straight into the bottles.
