- Place coconut fiber liner into the toolbox. This toolbox probably needed a slightly larger liner, but I wanted to use what I had on hand.
- Fill the liner with dirt.
- Make holes in the dirt to place flowers.
- Place flowers in the dirt and fill around the edges.
- Add more dirt if necessary.
Tips for Using Upcycled Planter Vessels
- If the vessel doesn’t have drainage, either drill a hole in the bottom or add a layer of rocks.
- Add at least one plant that drapes over the edge for interest. I chose potato vine for this purpose. It also looks beautiful against the black toolbox.
- Don’t forget to water. This toolbox has no natural drainage, so I water it lightly every few days.
