I suppose if you wanted to you could also use a 10 Barrell Apocalypse IPA bottle for this watering system. (Just make sure it’s empty!) Many thanks to Cristi Takeda, the Buzz Coffee and Wine, for leading me to this post, Reuse Wine Bottles to Water Your Plants. Here I have placed an emptied wine bottle, full of water, in my pallet garden. The slow release of the water should last 6 to 8 hours. Here I used a 2007 Chateau de Robin Merlot bottle. Cheers!
I have also used this set-up for a well developed basil plant in a pot. This will be interesting. Thanks Bill Fraser, Fraser Vineyards Winemaker and Owner, for making this awesome bottle of 2005 Fraser Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon available. (We still have some more.)
