DIY: Plants in boots

Plants in Boots - Kittenhood

Plants in boots are in no way a new idea, but I’ve been meaning to do it for ages! I’ve actually been keeping these boots in the hallway for more than a year after they were no longer waterproof, in the hope of turning them into quirky planters. And finally, it happened! We’ve had pretty warm weather for February, so I took some time to plant herbs and these pretty primroses.

How to:

I started by piercing the sole of the boots in a few places, for draining. Next, I filled the foot area of the boots with gravel – this helps with draining, but it’s also heavy enough to keep the boots standing even in windy weather. I filled the leg area of the boots with potting soil and carefully planted the primrose seedlings. Wet regularly and enjoy the colorful flowers for a few months!
