Plants in boots are in no way a new idea, but maybe you’re in need of some guidance on how to make yours. I’ve actually been keeping these polka dot boots for more than a year after they were no longer waterproof (I’m not sure what happened) in the hope of turning them into quirky planters some day. And finally, it happened! The idea is good for both indoor and outdoor planters. If you decide to keep them in the garden or balcony, the boots will get a patina with time, from all the rain and elements. It’s a patina I like, but if you’re not into it, just keep your boot planters sheltered.

Started by piercing the sole of the boots in a few places, for draining. Next, fill the foot area of the boots with gravel – this helps with draining, but it’s also heavy enough to keep the boots standing in windier weather. Fill the leg area of the boots with potting soil, and carefully plant the (primrose) seedlings. Wet regularly and enjoy the colorful flowers!
