Plastic bottles can make fantastic hanging planters for your patio, kitchen window or garden. By recycling your plastic bottles, you can begin to grow a wider variety of plants or flowers that will add a touch of colour to your home, school or community centre. We particularly enjoy growing strawberries – they’re wonderfully colourful and so delicious to eat!
