Yes I know, if you love gardening then you probably enjoy the time you spend watering your plants and vegetables like I do. We have discussed the diy plastic soda bottle self waterer before, but that was for hanging baskets. Today we will take a look at a solution for your garden, the diy plastic soda bottle drip feeder.

Besides being very cheap and easy to make, there are many other advantages to using this system. For example, some plants would rather have more water at root level to help develop their roots, than overhead as this may cause leaf problems and fungus. Don’t forget that you are also helping the environment by recycling used plastic soda bottles.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2L plastic soda bottle
  • barbeque skewers
  • hose
  • shovel or hoe
  • panty hose (optional)
  • PVC pipe (optional)
  • funnel (optional)

This is probably one of the simplest things, we have made on this blog. It is recommended that if you are using this for your vegetables, then use only BPA free soda bottles, to prevent any problems with chemicals leaking into your plants. Some gardeners have suggested doing away with the soda bottles altogether and using tera cotta pots instead.

Anyhow, use the barbecue skewers to poke holes into your plastic bottle. You do not actually want too many holes as the water is supposed to be released slowly. Dig next to your plants and place the bottle there. Fill with water using a hose or a can and refill whenever the bottle gets empty. There you go, your own water drip feeder! 🙂
