    Use empty water bottles as mini greenhouses to uncovered plants, to improve growth - remove the lids for air watering (",)

  • Siriporn Falcon-Grey

    Love those friends who save their BIG water bottles for us - they triple the growth compared to uncovered plants. Remove lids for air watering, handles make it easy to lift off. String them onto a single twine by handles, knot at end and hang on side of shed for storage. I use a brush and barrel of water to scrub them out ready for next year first.

How to build a hot bed out of recycled glass bottles. The idea is simple: the sunlight warms up the air inside the glass and expands. The heated air is pushed through the bottle neck into the soil warming it, and the plant growing in the soil. Because of the limited size of the garden show display we made it small and in a circle large enough for one plant. This concept can be used for any size bed – just keep in mind the size or length of your bottles, which can be valuable growing space.
