    @James Gleason : Those are mayonnaise pots. I get them for free in local
    restaurants.

    isn’t the plastic (the chemicals) a bit dangerous and toxic? considering it
    will be in the sun. Thanks!

    Did you use seeds for these plant towers or small seedlings?

    Imagine using plastic bottles that never decay in a landfill and using them
    as free planters to feed people. The man deserves an award. Thank you so
    much for such a well presented idea. I will use this for my small garden.

    Good morning,
    Spring is around the corner and I hope everyone is beginning to plan their
    organic gardens for the coming season. Even if your space is very limited
    you can grow a fabulous vertical garden for herbs and other smaller plants.
    This method is great for growing and harvesting seeds, to ensure you and
    your family have seed stock for the future. Be safe my friends and remember
    unity is our best weapon, share knowledge and spread the word.

    An effective and efficient way of people growing their own food even if
    they live in apartments and don’t have back yards.Too busy with work to
    lease patches of land for that purpose, the areas available for renting and
    using it as you would at your home, offering a large enough area for either
    direct planting on ground or in a greenhouse.

    I love this idea! But It needs just a little more directions. Where and
    how do you cut the holes for the seeds and plants. How do you water it? How
    much? Thanks!

    I have some questions. How big do the bottles need to be? Can they be small
    vending machine ones, or is it best that I use large liter bottles?

    I’ve been researching tower gardens for a small commercial strawberry
    application for some time. There are plenty of better looking systems out
    there, but they all cost a LOT more. This system is simple, economical and
    it works. The one modification I am going to suggest is painting the
    bottles white to reduce heat in the soil before the leaves get big enough
    to shade the bottles. Other than that, I’m investing a lot of time and
    money into this very shortly – 4-6 weeks. I plan to use a 2x4x8 board,
    pressure treated, sunk about 3 feet into the ground and 2 towers of bottles
    on the pole with 5 or six plant spaces for strawberry plants. no or minimal
    weeding, easy to set up a timer on a drip irrigation system. Not going to
    do a you pick, everything will be me or staff. Yes it doesn’t look as
    pretty as the commercial towers for $100 plus each, but this can be made
    under $5 a tower and from everything i see should work just as well. as for
    bottle degradation, i plan to replace the bottles in 3-4 years as the life
    of the plants die, so that’s no big deal if they do deteriorate, if not i
    recycle them. I don’t think they will, plastic pop bottles last 100s of
    years. it’s the milk jugs that break down. THANK YOU for the video. I
    really appreciate it as there are very few other videos out there on tower
    pop bottle gardens. VERY IMPRESSED.

    Love this!! Thanks for sharing and promoting sustainable gardening.

  20. Hanny Witarsa says:

    It is indeed a very good idea,especially when you live in a housing complex
    where space is very limited to grow plants.

    Dirty kitchen sink water without heavy food debris works is great for
    plants. If you are worried about lack of acidity put a dab of white
    vinegar in your dirty kitchen sink water, I have found the soap to not
    affect the plants (just dont use bleach or antibacterial soap) Plants like
    dirty kitchen sink water.. ! great plant food.

    This gave me some great ideas, thanks.
