Plastic Bottle Planter
For this project you'll need a plastic bottle of your choice, cut in half (top and bottom), a piece of rebar roughly 6' long and 1" PVC pipe roughly 5' in length. An assortment of tools would be quite helpful, potting soil and an assortment of flowers to plant.
Here's a look at my wheelbarrow full of supplies, let's get started!
I used a sawsall to cut the pipe, if you've never done this be careful, it likes to jump around. A hacksaw would work as well.
As I'm sure you noticed I didn't bother to take the labels off of the bottle (lazy, I know). This was a quickie project so I didn't take the time and the flowers will fill in so quickly they'll be hidden anyway. You could also paint them and the PVC pipe if you chose.
Here's a look at the second one. There will be grasses and a lilac in the back, coneflowers all around, daylilies to the left with a rose bush and privets with Russian sage on the other side. Once it fills in it should be gorgeous!
If you look closely you can see the first one in the background.

Put on thinking caps, about how I can adapt this for my balcony with a high ceiling... I’ll try to get back myself with any ideas I come up with. I don’t have a huge space, so I’m going vertical! I also plan to do about 4 pots, & maybe a crossover of some sort. Hmmm! Blessings!!!
