BOTTLE TOWER GARDENS

BOTTLE TOWER GARDENS

This video shows the efficiency and sustainability of a bottle tower garden. They can be installed against the wall of a house or along a hedge or a fence. The number of bottle towers has to be adapted for providing food security for the family all year long and year after year. It is a method applicable anywhere on earth, both in rural and in urban areas, e;g. on a balcony. It can be applied at the lowest cost to alleviate malnutrition and hunger.

How many colours can you find in a garden?

    okay, which is more ecologically sound. using the plastic bottles vs. planting a sustainable plot? i would hope that nobody’s buying things in plastic bottles anymore. a trip to the recyclery? most rapidly commonly used are water and soda bottles. oops, soda’s not healthy, either.

    I want try this idea reusing our old milk containers I am not sure if it will work as well. The bottles are rectangle but I think they will stack okay if it works it will look great.
    I was wondering if you get algae in the media after while with sun and moisture?

    Is this limited to leafy green herbs & vegies? No fruit or roots? I enjoyed it!!

    In the Mojave Desert where I am, even if you use food-grade plastics, the soil and roots get way too hot and the plants all die no matter if they get enough water. Cover the bottles with aluminum foil bubble wrap to insulate and darken the roots might help?? Very tricky dealing with the extreme heat to container garden in any kind of pots here.

    what nutrients do you use? is only roots composting enough to grow in another year?

  26. brian 2018-02-13 at 6:40 AM - Reply

    In my opinion this video is not a video, it is a series of pictures. A series of pictures is not a video and it is very inconvenient to watch a series of pictures, its better to just make a picture gallery instead of trying to make a video of pictures lol
    A lot of people in you tube upload pictures galleries and call it a video, ahr!

    Would love to know just how you set it up in more detail. It looms like the bottles are stacked inside each other and a gap for the plant to grow out of…. It is a beautiful garden the. Thanks for sharing

    Looks great. I can understand the herbs and lettuces doing well, Can you really get a cauliflower and broccoli out of a bottle?

    Plastic and nature does not work well. It might look ok but is not healthy. Try glass jars.

    Looks very interesting.

    Do you have to use some kind of fertilizer at some point, since I imagine the soil would get poorer in nutrients as time goes by ?

    You didn’t show: 1- How you mount them in the first place and if you put the thin opening of the lid down or cut them up, and if so, how do you put soil in them?? 2- How do you water them so that water reaches the contents of the lowest bottles?! ???
