Hi! I would like to show you how to make a self watering planter or (sub irrigation container), using recycled materials. Something such as this is great for starting a small indoor herb garden, however that does not mean you are limited as to what you would like to use it for.

Step 1: What You Will Need.

2 plastic bottles. (I will be using two, 1/2 gallon, peak tea bottles) 1 old sock Box cutter Scissors 1 permanent Marker 1 ruler ( or anything you can use to make a decent measurement) Soil and seeds 1 cheesy quote! "it's better to measure 10 times and cut once, then to measure once and cut 10 times."
Yes, won't come out exactly the same as this one but very similar. Just experiment :)
Nice one !:) might be doing this just a quick question for the bottle can i use a <br>coca cola 3 liter bottle x2 tho
