I have many uses for empty wine bottles in my garden. Witness this wine bottle edging video I posted last year.

Now, in the heat of Summer, wine bottles find a new use as slow waterers for my container plants. I fill them with water and up-end them into the pot. A bit of soil is forced into the neck of the bottle, acting like a sort of wick, which allows the water to slowly drain directly into the roots of the plants. When working correctly, you should only see a water bubble rising up the wine bottle every minute or so.
