    I loved the plastic bottle planters.

      i like them too.. but as the plant gets bigger the bottle tends to "roll" over :) its just easier to hang them vertically

      • Yasha Wallin

        Good point, and hopefully the plastic isn't harmful to the plants either.

      • chaitanyak krishnan

        sorry just realised most of those particular plants don't grow that big..
        so good idea anyway

    The newspaper planter box would be a great way for people to stop and smell the roses in a big city. All of these ideas are really creative and it would be great to see more of them around. Thanks for sharing Yasha!

      Yes, it would be great to see more like this around big cities. It seems like seed bombs are the easiest way to get something like this started. I'm going to have to experiment.

      • chaitanyak krishnan

        yup.. seed bombs sound like fun. need to go make some now :)
