Making your own inverted planters

There’s a num­ber of arti­cles on DIY meth­ods. One sim­ple, effec­tive way is to put a cher­ry tomato plant through the bottom hole of a plas­tic hang­ing planter, fill it with dirt and plant pars­ley on the top of it.

Some use plas­tic 2‑liter soda jugs and mount them to stakes out­doors.

“Invert­ed Indoor Gar­den­ing” was a 2006 arti­cle on mak­ing an indoor planter accord­ing to this method. [archive]
