Milk Bottle Planters – Vegetable Planters Made Easy Make your own Milk bottle planters. How many milk jugs do you throw out? Why not save some and make some DIY planters out of them. Here I’m using them for Tomatoes but many other vegetables and flowers can be planted in milk jugs as well. This could be especially beneficial if you lack space for vegetable gardening. The planter hangers can be found at any garden center. We have accumulated many over the years and I try to make use of them. Thanks for watching.

    To everyone asking about the  hangers. You can improvise. It you're  a fisherman just  use  some 10-15 lb. test line.  .Or get a spool of cheap gaged  wire at  Hobby  Lobby or  WaL Mart.  Yarn. Lots of choices.

    Better to plant it in the top of the container ! The plant grow up towards the sun not down.

    why did you decide  to grow the tomatoes out of the bottom of the milk jug?

  • Carol Farkas 1 year ago

    I think this is brilliant! the milk jug is ugly so you grow the plant out the bottom and it grows up covering the milk bottle so you just have a hanging ball of green. Love it!

    Wouldn't think that one gallon would do it for tomatoes but who knows.

  • Gina Pocan 1 year ago

    I am real ignorant to this, so I have to ask, what is the purpose behind the plant growing out of the bottom of the planter? That seems unnatural, won't it curl up?

    Get some good rope, maybe nylon as opposed to hemp and make your own.  If you have tons of time and are obsessive like me, you could even macrame the hangers. ;)

    You can easily cut a 2 wire about 3ft fold them in half and twist together to make a loop then you can get 4 prong hanging..

    Thanks for your video, so go check out Larry Hall on FaceBook or YouTube, and see his "Rain Gutter Grow" set up, also his Kiddy pool using the Wal-Mart blue bags and a small kiddy pool from Wal-Mart to grow veggies in, I just bought 20 of them at Wal-Mart yesterday… Good luck!

    I'd like to give this a try! Do you have a link to were you purchased the 3-prong hangers?

    Thanks man. Great video. I will use this technique soon and post the results on my channel.

  • tjar12 1 year ago

    It works good if you don't have room for pots but have room to hang stuff.

    That's great. I use these milk containers in different way to plant yet I never thought of this way. Thanks for showing us another way to do gardening.
