Bottles

 Over 31 styles and colors to choose from!
 
Personally, I prefer the Cobalt Blue glass in the gardens...it contrasts the best with the greens of your plants...and the color will last!

A case of 12 bottles will cost about $18 to $26 to ship.  You may mix or match colors and styles to make a case.  You may also order less than 12 bottles if you wish, but shipping 6 bottles costs about the same as shipping 12.


News about Cobalt Blue Glass Bottles:

I recently received news from my bottle supplier that cobalt blue glass bottles are now being made in limited runs.  That means the prices on blue glass bottles will be increasing sometime soon. Why?  Recyclers do not like taking blue glass because it needs to be separated from other glass.

Today, 7-2-20, I learned my supplier is now temporarily out of the Cobalt Blue Bottles I use on my trees.  So...I guess it has started.  I am thinking we will start seeing the blue glass go away.  I hope not.  I will keep you informed.  Meanwhile...the cost of blue glass is going crazy.  Sorry.

On that front, I am already starting to see some blue glass bottles which were sprayed cobalt blue.  The blue color on those bottles does not last for long if they are kept in the Sun!  Cobalt Blue Glass does not fade.

I hate that spray-on color...but we all may need to start getting ready for that eventuality.  

Cobalt Blue Glass---My Favorite!

Some Considerations for
Painted Bottles...

My Enamel Painted Glass Bottle colors will remain fairly bright on these bottles for several years, but the enamel paint will start to become discolored or flakey after a short while.  It all depends on how much direct Sunlight they receive as well as other conditions.  I have some painted bottles, which receive partial Sun, and have remained in good color for over 8 years. It's a kinda coin-toss.  Painting glass is just so unreliable because of the smooth surface.  Without roughing the surfaces, paint simply does not adhere very well to glass.

My LGBT Bottle Tree (below) was made about two years ago...that's three Summers and two Wisconsin Winter.  The bottles might have a scratch here and there, but they still look pretty good.  The Wisconsin Badgers Bottle Tree (also below) is about 6 years old.  Painted bottles will also scratch easily...so handle them with care! One way or another, my experience with my painted colored bottles has been pretty good.   

The above opaque colors are fun when used for the Holidays!
Red and Green for Christmas.
Red and White for my Wisconsin Badger's Tree.
Orange and Green for my Green Bay Packer's Tree.
Yellow, Pinks and Purples for Easter.
Black and Orange for Halloween.
Red, White, and Blue for July 4th.

Drill a Hole
If you wanted a 5/8-inch hole drilled in the bottom of the bottle, add $1/.  If interested...Email me here...

In the end...I useally opt for the Cobalt Blue Glass Bottles.  The color lasts FOREVER and the blues contrast nicely with the greens of the gardens.  But I must admit...the colored bottles are fun!

And BE FORWARNED! I have tried many of the translucent colored bottles, like the red and frosted ones I sell, but the color is a food-safe spray-on.  That color does not last. and do not last more than a year in direct sunlight.  They look good for the first few months...then they fade the second year...then they turn opaque and the sprayed-on coloring starts to flake off...leaving a very ugly bottle.  But, they are pretty for one Summer at least.

If you really want a good translucent colored bottle, it NEEDS to be made with colored glass!  Problem is...they are harder to find, and can get very expensive.  For example, did you know red glass is made with gold?

My choice...I use my enamel-painted bottles when I want a color to last more than a year.  I have some bottle trees with my enamel-painted bottles which have been looking pretty good for over 12 years.
