Garden / June 13, 2018 /
Upcycling can lead to some very interesting containers - steel pasta strainers are great for kitchen herbs, reclaimed vintage boxes will add flair to your vegetative stylings and even upcycled plastic totes can make great planters if you are more concerned with utility than style. You are limited only by your imagination and preferences. You will want to remember to allow for drainage, so if necessary drill holes or otherwise puncture the bottom of your chosen containers.
You do not need a lot of space to grow fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits. You do not really even need a garden. Plant breeders know that after taste, home gardeners want a high yield in a small space, so they have been developing more varieties that can grow in a small foot print or even live in containers all year long.
