DIY Drip Irrigation System, Made from Plastic Bottles The 'system' is super simple. All we have to do is grab some 2-liter plastic bottles, punch 2 holes into the sides and 2 into the bottom, and plant said bottles next to our plants. Fill them with water and our plants will get that slow watering they prefer. For more information about the project, visit Fine Craft Guild.
Need to try this. A Master Gardener program used water crystals in planters and it is the same thing in diapers. Someone else said, "The trick to amazing potted plants - diapers. I did this in my hanging baskets last year and they rocked all season."
Drip irrigation reuse for Container Gardening: reuse a plastic bottle! "Leaving the bottle right-side-up and and poking the small hole(s) in the bottom of the 2 liter bottle, because then I can screw the cap back on and keep bugs, like mosquitoes, and garden debris out of the water reservoir"
