Growing inverted Tomato plant in bottle

 It is always a fun experience to grow your own veggies which are organically grown at your space. I have been growing all varieties of Tomatoes from past many years. This year I tried a very unique way of growing Tomatoes and I was fortunate to succeed in my first attempt. 

I tried growing inverted Tomato plant in a Recyclable Plastic Water Bottle.

This is a old Plastic bottle whose base has been removed to fill the soil mixture 

                                                                         A 1000ml  empty bottle

The base of bottle is removed for filling soil mixture

Tomato seedling inserted from the cap side

                                              And after 2months the first tomatoes appear

                                                 Tomatoes ripened and ready to be harvested

Things to remember growing inverted Tomatoes plants in bottles

- Tomato seedling should be gently inserted in bottle without damaging root system of the plant
- Soil mixture should be light and fertilizer rich so that plant gets its strength and food adequately
- Watering should be done moderately when the plant requires it otherwise the plant will rot eventually.                                                                                                                       

The spring summer transition is always a happy time in the Garden as there is a freshness of leaves and flowers can be felt in the Garden

  1. This is really interesting - I'm having a hard time envisioning where to place the bottle at our home, but it looks like fun!

  9. Unique idea! Here in south Florida we could grow them in the fall but now it is getting too hot outside for them. Link to some wildflowers in ROSYFINCH RAMBLINGS: http://rosy-finch.blogspot.com/2021/04/crops-clips-flashback-three-years-to.html
