Build a Self-Watering Survival Garden for Small Spaces

Below is a video demonstrating how to build a self-watering garden for small spaces. All you need is a few pop bottles, a plastic storage container, some paint and a fitting or two.

This selff-watering garden uses a passive form of hydroponics. And there’s more than one way to water your plants, as you’ll see.

This 23 minute video came to my attention quite a while back, but I lost track of the info I needed so I could share it with you before now. I’m happy to pass it along to you, with the hope it will be useful.

One of the advantages of a system like this is you can set it up any time. Consider putting one of these together if you’re limited on gardening space. Or, do as the man who put the video together, and make a few of these to give as gifts to others.
