"Very simple and easy garden idea! Like many of you I like to repurpose items, so this old milk box was calling out for a new use! As you can see, all you need is an old milk box, planting soil, and a plant pot (with drainage) that fits the milk box opening. You can also place a brick in the bottom of box if your planter needs a little more height. Now, all you needs are some beautiful flowering plants! I like to use annual plants like verbena or million bells that flow over the box! Have fun!"

Materials List
