You can't always get what you want, babe

But if you try sometimes, you just might find

You get what you need.

That's pretty cool. Would be good for someone with very small space. You could do quite a few of these with all of the plastic bottles available.

Love it! I'm trying to decide where I could put one. We're not doing a garden this spring due to toooo much summer activities, but I could do this with herbs and lettuce. I just have to decide where and find enough bottles.Thanks for sharing it!

:balloons: Oh my gosh! This is *just* the thing for an avid container collector like me. It proves I'm not just a hoarder if you're USING the stuff - right. :wink (2):

Seriously, this is even better, I think, than the one I posted in Urban. http://mrssurvival.c...showtopic=43996 Cuz of the lack of evaporation, this watering system is GREAT for our arrid climate. In a humid one, you might get fungal growth in those clear bottles - open to sunlight on the roots. :shrug:

But I see in one pic that he's used opaque containers too. Cottage cheese or yogurt cartons... For a bit larger plant. Can't get one that has a very broad root base but....lots of potential. And watering is a snap!

I like it! Where can I put one. NOT along the goat fence.... :shakinghead:

I just posted the results of looking at this vertical garden video.... http://mrssurvival.c...t=0#entry377936


Oh my gosh....this and some other techniques have some HUGE potential for my issues with aging/disability, poor soil, no rain, and maurading deer/bunnies/elk/etc

THANK YOU, Jeepers! This is where my quest began.

My Pleasure. Hope it helps. I know I appreciate standing up to do some gardening or at least not crawling on my hands and knees. This can be used in smaller places too.
