With Alice returning back home soon from university she has been clearing out her old bedroom throwing out things she doesn't need any more. One thing she was dispensing with was a pink plastic basket. I thought it would make an interesting planter in the garden. Before I filled the basket with compost I placed chunks of polystyrene in the base, so as not to use or waste too much compost. Once planted, with a few annuals, I parked the basket on an old bench in the garden. The handles will make it easy to place the basket where ever the fancy takes me!
