With the weather so nice and warm the last few days here in California, I have really been wanting to bring the outdoors inside my home!
So far my husband and I have made a cool planter and candle holder out of baby food jars and a piece of wood, a two-foot long planter box full of daffodils, and I planted a bunch of wheat grass today (more on that next week!). I usually let my husband do the gardening because he has a major green thumb, but this warm sunny weather has gotten me in the spirit!
I love the look of galvanized metal, and fell in love with these little pails when I saw them at Target. They were in the dollar spot, but were on clearance for only 30 cents! I bought up every single one at about 3 different Targets 😉 I thought they would make adorable little planters for inside my house!I then bought these pretty flowers at Home Depot, which were on sale for only 50 cents! That makes the cost of a pail plus a plant only $1.50, which is fabulous (80 cents for me since I found some on clearance!).
I talked to the “plant expert” at Home Depot, and he assured me that the flowers I bought, begonias, would be fine in my pail without a drainage hole in the bottom, as long as I didn’t over water.
If you wanted to use plants that require a lot of drainage, you could always just drill a hole in the bottom of your pail. Make sure that you have the right amount of sunlight in your home that is required for the plant(s) that you buy.
All I did was remove my plants from their plastic container, add a little soil to the bottom of each pail, loosen the soil and the roots a little bit from the bottom of the plant, and place them in their new galvanized home!
This really couldn’t be easier, but is a nice addition to any home, and a great way to welcome in spring!
Think you’ll give these pretty planters a try? Does it feel like spring where you are?
