Bottle Garden on a Wall at Glossop

This bottle garden on a wall is not a conventional mural but nonetheless an effective way of decorating the stonework. Plastic bottles have been used as planters.

It was originally created in 2014 by Wendy Kirby of Glossop Craft Centre on Smithy Fold off High Street East. Some photographs of it in all its colourful glory can be found on the Craft Centre's Facebook Group pages.

The wall is opposite the centre on Smithy Fold which leads to the Old Stables Photographic Studio. In the background is the Howard Town Mill development.

A contribution to Monday Murals.


  1. Not that I like plastic bottles. But this is actually quite smart and looks nice:)

  2. A great way to reuse all those bottles.

  3. Indeed a nice trick that bottle wall. Another way to use pet bottles.

  4. This is a great way to use plastic bottles. This wall garden looks just fine.

  5. Clever and actually pretty. First one of these I've ever seen. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
