7 Plastic Bottle Hacks You Need to Try in Your Garden
We all know plastic bottles are wasteful, so wasteful in fact, America uses more than 17 million barrels of oil annually to meet it’s plastic water bottle demand, according to Ban the Bottle. So why not put those bottles to re-use to help improve your life and your gardens? In a video from HuwsNursery, you can use these seven gardening hacks presented to save money and make the most of recycling plastic bottles.
The first hack shows you how to protect your seedlings from slugs and other natural predators. The second hack uses a bottle as seed storage while the third actually makes a slug trap, if you happen to find slugs pestering your garden. Next, the video shows you how to use bottles to make a water reservoir, so when you go away for long periods of time, your plants can still get water. The fifth hack teaches you how to use a bottle as a mini greenhouse by cutting off the bottom and unscrewing the cap to get airflow. If you don’t have a watering can, you can actually make one out of a water bottle by puncturing the cap with little holes, and, finally, make yourself a planter by turning the bottle sideways and cutting a hole out of the side. Check out all the hacks in the video below.
