Home Gardening: Ever since the Corona epidemic, a wave of urban farming has also started in the country. Earlier gardening was limited to flowers only, but now even fruit and vegetable plants are being planted in pots. Some people do not have space in their house and the pots occupy a lot of space. In such a situation, you can use the waste plastic bottles. These days the season of carrot, radish, fenugreek, coriander, spinach, green onion, bathua and chilli is going on. If you want, along with all these vegetables, you can also plant some flowering plants and herbal plants in the bottles.
In every kitchen, the seeds are thrown in the garbage at the time of harvesting vegetables, but if you save these seeds, you can prepare your own garden. These seeds are collected in packets and when making platters from plastic bottles, these seeds can be washed and planted in the soil.
make a spray bottle
Many times we put more water in the planters, due to which the plants start rotting. Instead, you can use a spray bottle. Apart from water from the spray bottle, you can also spray fertilizer or neem oil made from kitten waste. It is very easy to make. Spray pump can be added by making a hole in the lid of the bottle. Spraying water in the plants in the evening leads to good growth of the plant.
How to make plant mix
After making planters and spray bottles from plastic bottles, make plant mix. If you don’t want to use soil, you can use vermicompost or cocopeat. For the good growth of the plant, you can also add cow dung manure and garden soil. Fill it in planters made of plastic bottle and leave it for two days after spraying light water. Now any vegetable seeds or plants can be planted in it.
Will get rid of pollution
Today, pollution due to plastic waste has increased a lot. Plastic bottles come in homes and people throw them in the garbage. To deal with this waste, the formula of Reduce-Reuse-Recycle is being adopted. You can also make a hanging garden or vertical garden from plastic bottles while working on this model. These planters do not spoil quickly and vegetable and flower plants can be planted in them for a long time.
