    Drip Irrigation System w Recycled Bottle. Good idea for a couple of places my drip line does not reach. 2 liter bottle (could use a water bottle) 2 holes in bottom, 2 in the sides. Refill bottle with water. Use the cap to control evaporation. Just refill bottle using a hose.

Still a great idea for recycling plastic bottles. You could also use this method to water plants while you're away.

Recycled Drip Irrigation System - right-side up 2-ltr. bottle with 2 holes punched in the sides and 2 in the bottom. Plant it deep next to your plants you wish to water. By screwing the caps back onto the bottles after refilling, the water is released slower.

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"

    Can you do this with smaller bottle's for smaller pots?

  • Tina Lavallee

    I used empty salad dressing bottles,with the bottoms cut off and turned upside down for smaller pots. I punched holes into the sides and left the cap on. It works wonderfully.

    This works amazing placed on top of zucchini or squash mounds with just holes in the bottom. Gallon milk jugs with a few rocks so they don't tip over.. A couple of holes just at the bottom.. Fill with water every few days, solves a difficult watering problem for plants that don't appreciate a downpour from above.
