Making planters out of Milk Jugs

Wash out your milk jugs

Cut the jugs (on these jugs there is a line just under the handle so i used this as the guide but it might be worth measuring the top and bottom , the ‘top half’ need to be smaller then the ‘bottom half’ so it will sit nice in each otherimage

Remove the lid and make a hole

thread a piece of string throw the whole to create a capillary action

image

Place the lid with the string back on the bottle

Place your top and bottom together (inside each other) and you have created your planter with a reservoir to store/collect the water , you can now sit this on your windowsill. Fill it with compost and your seedlings and let the growing begin.
