Gardening: Increase cheap planters from recycled milk jugs

After harvesting many plants, we can easily run out of planters from stores. So, I started thinking about how we can make planters from recycled daily products. I find one gallon milk and juice cartons are good candidates. Let’s try this with one gallon milk jag first.

  1. Drink milk and empty the jag 🙂
  2. Cut the top piece
  3. Make holes from bottom with soldering iron (a lot easier than a nail)


4. Put some rocks. This will help excess water flow through this hand-made planter.


5. Put soil on top of rock


Now, it looks like just a planter. Happy planting.
