I encountered some $0.99 baskets at a local thrift store and decided they can make great planters.
First, I selected an appropriate liner (I used small grow bags I had on hand, but it could have been any peas of cloth or a plastic container of the right shape (just remember about drainage holes!). I will use these outdoors, but for indoor use, I would have included a saucer or something like it to prevent water from dripping.
That’s pretty much it! I filled the planter with potting mix…
And planted some marigolds.
Here is the second planter I made, now being a home to book choy and a blue aster.
Hope you find this helpful!
