Clever Onion Tower

Onion Tower on the Window Sill


I saw this on facebook and was fascinated - look at how practical and space saving this is!
…and since I was curious myself, I did a bit of research and this is what I found:

FIRST, you need a planting vessel:
plastic bottles
NEXT, you need to remove the neck of the bottle then cut holes around it. You can use a scissor or a heated metal tool to make the holes. Make sure the holes are just the right for the onion bulbs.

NEXT, fill the bottle with layers of onion sprouts and soil.
Keep adding layers until you reach the top of the container.

NEXT, water it…
AND FINALLY, set it on your windowsill…
onions on windowsill - Copy
And watch daily as your onions grow…
In no time, you’ll have something like this:
I wonder what else we can grow in these bottles - oh yea make sure that the bottle doesn't have BPA and yes plastics are the devil, but i must admit this is devilishly innovative.
