Plant a Beer Garden
Brew up this clever container garden featuring plants used in the beer-making process.
A very apropos trellis made from empty beer bottles!
A Clever Centerpiece
This beer inspired centerpiece is perfect for your next summer cook-out.
A Galvanized Tub
Add proper drainage holes to the bottom of your container as needed and fill it halfway with potting soil.
Hops To It
Plant the hops and evenly space the beer bottles around the hops. Anchor them into the soil halfway down.
Add More Plants
Finish you garden by planting the remaining plants. I've planted hops, rosemary, lavender, sweet woodruff and chocolate mint.
Craft the Trellis
Add a twig to each beer bottle.
Knot the Twigs
Tie the tops of the twigs together with gardening twine.
Gently wrap and guide your hops around the trellis.
Trim the Tops
Trim the tops of the trellis twigs to similar lengths.
For the final touch, cover any exposed soil with moss. This helps to keep the garden from drying out too quickly. Be sure to regularly water your garden.
Harvest the Ingredients
If you enjoy home brewing, look into incorporating your beer garden plantings into your next batch of brew.
