In a hurry, run out of time, too much to do or home late?
We all have reasons for not getting things done but we still want it to look nice around us.
What do you do with the plants that you meant to plant up in some nice pots?
To hide the ugly black or brown plastic pots becomes the most important thing.
Here I have hidden the black plastic pots in a shoulder basket.
My friend who was moving asked me if had any use for a basket with a broken shoulder strap.
Well, I only had to think for a moment as I loved the colours and being a "collector of props" I happily accepted her offer.
I put some plastic in the bottom to protect the basket then some crumpled newspaper to raise the pots. A saucer under each pot for watering is also a good idea.
I had a very nice and colourful display with seasonal pink heather that lasted until I had a bit more time to repot the plants in more permanent pots.
