A lovely friend of mine gave me three of these old wooden crates. I can't tell you how pleased I am. They have been waiting patiently in my garage for me to put to use in my garden.
I dug out some tools from my toolbox and a spare roll of membrane from my vegetable beds and got to work.
I stapled the membrane inside the box to form a liner, not too neatly, I might add!
Then filled them with compost and positioned them in some gaps around the deck. I have planted one with some lavender plants that I had since last year and were looking for a new home.
And filled the other 2 with some sweet-smelling nicotiana, bright surfina and a couple of spare busy lizzies from the front garden.
