How To: Make an Upside-Down Tomato Planter Using an Empty Soda Bottle

Make an Upside-Down Tomato Planter Using an Empty Soda Bottle

Combine your passion for drinking soda and growing your own vegetables by making an upside-down tomato planter! This gardening project is especially great for people who have limited space for growing their own green things. To make this, you'll be using an empty soda bottle, aluminum foil, masking tape, twine, potting soil, and other simple materials.

Simply cut the bottom base of a bottle, line the inside with aluminum foil, place tomato seedling upside-down through the spout, fill with soil, and hang the bottle upside down in an area that receives a lot of sunlight.

The beauty of the upside-down soda bottle planter is that it can be used to grow other vegetables—like squash and hot peppers—and even indoors to grow herbs like cilantro, basil, and parsley.
