Window herb Garden: A Way of Waste Bottle Utilization

Waste plastic bottle is composed of complex polymers that takes over 1000 year to bio-degrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes and hence pose a disposal challenge. To protect the environment, it can be recycled in several ways.  
Here, we have recycled the waste water bottle into window herb garden for successful production of smaller plant and herbs . This method is very useful in urban areas where people live in apartment or studios and have limited space and time for gardening. 

Window Herb Garden

Material required:
  • Waste Water Bottle (1L)                                                   
  • Knife
  • Screwdriver
  • Galvanized iron wire
  • Soil
  • Seeds of desired herbs
  • Sprayer
Take waste plastic bottles of 1L capacity (For the production of veggies, 2 L bottles can be used). Cut this bottle in half about midway toward the top with the help of sharp knife. Make 3-4 drainage holes at the closed end of each part by using screwdriver.  Fill the bottle gently with garden soil, leave about 1 cm space at the top.  Tie all the parts onto a iron window fence with galvanized iron wire. Sow the water soaked seeds of desired herbs. Irrigate the garden with sprayer, as needed. 


We have grown coriander, methi, wheat jaware, Coleus and other ornamental plants from this method. Now we are planning for big one (Says Deepa).
