Gotta lotta bottle(s)? Put them to good use with this windowsill wonder
YOU WILL NEED:
Used bottle (glass* or plastic)
Herbs for planting
1 Cut a bottle in two, with the neck bit shorter than the bottom bit.
2 Turn neck part upside down into base. Cut a length of string to reach through the neck to the bottle’s base. Add water to the bottom part. 3 Cut a piece of screen, just big enough to rest securely over the top of the bottle’s neck.
4 Make a small hole in the centre
of the screen. Thread the string through the hole, securing with a knot. Pass string through neck of bottle, so screen sits in place.
5 Plant up herbs into the top part and put water in the bottom. The string acts as a wick for water.
* Buy glass-cutting kits at craft stores – there are tutorials online,
or if you know people with the right tools and skills, they can help you.
