Spring is so close that I can smell it! It's just about time to start planting those spring crops, and now is also the perfect time to add a few upcycled touches to your spring garden. Here are a few ideas to get you going!
1. Boot Planters
Going vertical is a great way to grow more in less space. Hit the thrift store and find some old rain boots to create these sweet, upcycled hanging planters.
2. Reclaimed Raised Bed
Raised beds are great for keeping weeds and pests at bay and in areas where the soil quality might be on the poor side. Instead of using new lumber, check out this upcycled garden bed using reclaimed wood instead.
3. Wine Box Containers
For smaller plants, like herbs, you can use old wine boxes to create beautiful, upcycled planters.
4. Bike Wheel Trellis
Gather up some old bike wheels and create a beautiful, upcycled trellis for your climbing plants, like beans!
5. Wine Cork Plant Markers
You think you will remember what you planted where, but there's always those one or two plants that slip through the cracks when you don't write things down. Grab some wine corks from your stash to make sweet, upcycled plant markers and never guess at your garden's layout again!
