    Or try a vintage bottle to add some character! Why spend money on some as seen on TV self watering plant globes? Recycling is free. Fill an empty wine bottle with water and stick it into a potted plant to water it while you are away or just because you are too busy to water. Wine bottles are best because of the long thin neck and the glass is heavy enough to stand up to light winds and not come out.

    Clever recycled bottle waterer. INGENIOUS! (Could use a beer bottle too for smaller plants!)

Great idea for keeping seedlings watered correctly. I might try some of the smaller soda and/or water bottles also. I would probably stay away from the really flimsy water bottles, though.
