  • Create a unique and striking piece of colorful garden art

  • 63" H installed
  • 4, 7" ground stakes for stability
  • Holds up to 16 1-liter bottles

Comments about Bottle Tree:

I am disapointed. it is a lot less sturdy then it looks. even with the small bottles on top as suggested, it bends. the ground stakes are long, but I had to put large rocks on top of them and leaned a heavy one on one side to keep it from leaning over any more. I could not put it in the garden where I wanted because of the wind...it would not hold up......but all that said, it looks nice where it is now, and the house protects it from the wind.....but next time...I will try to get a friend to make me one out of rebar.....then I can put it in the garden!

Watch out for high winds

    Comments about Bottle Tree:

    The bottle tree looked great in my garden for almost a year and then we had very high winds (trees and power lines came down) and the main stem snapped off from the base. Many of the bottles broke when it hit the ground. The stem is not repairable unless I take it to a welder. I believe this area in the mountains has higher winds than most areas of the country, so most people won't have this issue. I've ordered the bottle "bush" to replace the "tree" and believe that one, with it's lower profile, won't succumb to the high winds.

        Comments about Bottle Tree:

        (1) My location experiences many windy days. Since strong wind resistance is poor with this tree, care must be taken with placement. (2) Because color is not in the glass, but an added surface to the glass, care is required in cleaning to keep from rubbing/scratching color off.

        Other than these 2 issues, the tree is totally wonderful to have and is fully supported by Gardeners Supply. I can vouch for Gardeners' support after 2 problems I had were immediately resolved as soon as I informed the company.

          Comments about Bottle Tree:

          VERY DISAPPOINTED. I UNDERSTAND THE BEND IN THE TRUNK, BUT ADDING THE BOTTLES MADE THE ENTIRE PIECE BEND TO THE POINT OF COMING OUT OF THE GROUND. WE ADDED SIX 11# PAVERS FOR STABILITY, WHICH MADE IT LOOK AWFUL. I WILL USE IT FOR A CORN FEEDER FOR THE SQUIRRELS. I HAD HIGH HOPES FOR A BOTTLE TREE; IT IS NOT THIS ONE

                I have looked at Bottle Trees for a few years.
                There is one in particular off the Golf course where I golf.
                I have all Cobalt Blue Bottles and placed the tree in my front flower bed. I get quite a few compliments on my tree. So glad I purchased one from Gardeners and will let my neighbors know where I purchased it.

                  I don't understand how you ship one "tree" and sell the glass as sets of two. very disappointed. No idea what to do with all these extra bottles.
                  The tree is so unstable we have to lean it against the house.
