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
  • Scissors
  • Marker pen
  • Drawing pin
  • String
  • A few strawberry plants
  • Soil / compost
  • Trowel
