Pop Bottle Greenhouse W/ T'paper Seedlings


Planting supplies can be expensive, so to make your own out of trash is a win/win. Rather than throw away the 2 liter bottles, cut them in half, flip them, and fill them. You can then plant your seeds or transplant seedlings.

    A greenhouse in a bottle! I never would have thought of that one. Thank you. Did you remove the bottle cap for drainage?

      If you want to get rid of the sharp edges after you cut the bottle in half cover your iron with foil and "iron" those sharp edges smooth.

    I am so thrilled you showed this..I am wanting to do this..but I have never planted seeds before..SO can you tell me after you plant them in the toliet paper rolls then do you cover them with the bottom of the pop container? how often do you water them? and then when they break thru the soil how long is it before you can plant them outside? one more question...DO you need to put them in the sun when you first plant them or keep them in the dark and moist? thank you..I am going to wait until I hear from and then do this..WIll save our paper rolls from now on...thank you so much..Victoria

    • Any seeds can be planted this way. We are in WI, so we get snow late too. That's why I've had to plant indoors. I started some seeds last week and my marigolds are starting to come up.
