Placing empty glass bottles (wine bottles, antique bottles, colorful bottles) in the garden as a way to trap evil spirits is a Southern tradition. These days, a bottle tree is also a way to remember a special celebration or add sparkling color to a quiet spot in the garden. See our Bottle Tree, Bottle Bush, and Colorful Bottles at gardeners.com.
