Cut the bottom off the bottle and keep it to use as a tray for windowsill
plants like lettuce, chillies or herbs. (If you're a young recycler/
gardener, you may want to get an adult to help you with the cutting).
Hole-punch the long sides, thread the lace through the holes and tie
securely to form two good hanging handles.
With the lid on, 3/4 fill with organic compost and press down gently
to firm it up.
Lay the bottle on its side, remove the lid and make a good sized hole
with your dibber (pencil). Carefully place the tomato plant in it and
press down firmly inside the bottle to secure the plant. It is hard
to believe that it won't fall out, but if you prefer to plug the hole
with moss for a snugger fit, feel free!
Hang the bottle on a wall that gets good sunshine and watch as
kicks in and makes the plant turn up towards the sky! Water every day
and pinch the central shoot out after the plant has split into 4 fronds
(branches) to stop it growing taller and to encourage bushy growth.
Small to medium sized tomatoes are best for this project. Have a go
with the Gardeners Delight variety or a Tumbling Tom.
