Tips For DIY Repurposed Garden Planters

  • Make sure there is proper drainage. If there are no drainage holes in the vessel you are going to use, be sure to add some.
  • Don’t overwater. This is pretty much the same with any plant, but super important with container gardens.
  • Don’t forget to fertilize. Once a month is recommended with a well-balanced fertilizer.
