Recycle an old tool caddy or wooden box into this gorgeous planter box – just in time for spring!
Drill and bits; scoop or trowel; garden fork
Drill a few drainage holes in bottom of tool caddy or container, then spread a layer of gravel, <br/>1-2cm thick.
Half-fill container with potting mix.
Scatter over controlled-release fertiliser and fork lightly into mix.
Carefully remove plants from their pots. Start by planting several trailing plants along the front edge of container – we used golden creeping jenny (Lysimachia nummularia).
Arrange daffodils prominently in centre of container so they are the stars of the display. Choose daffodils that still have unopened buds. Fill any spaces between daffodils with flowering annuals – we used purple angelonia, which will continue flowering into summer.
