Create a wonderful plastic bottle planter!
Plastic bottles can make fantastic hanging planters for your patio, kitchen window or garden. By recycling your plastic bottles, you can begin to grow a wider variety of plants or flowers that will add a touch of colour to your home, school or community centre. We particularly enjoy growing strawberries – they’re wonderfully colourful and so delicious to eat!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
We aim to use as much natural and recycled materials in all of our activities. To make your bottle planter, you’ll need:
- Plastic bottle
- Marker pen
- Drawing pin
- A few strawberry plants
- Soil / compost
