Picture of Wooden Fruit Box Planter
Hi! This is my first instruc, so please be gentle...

I live in an apartment with fairly big balconies, nevertheless, I'm always trying to get big planters suitable for my space and I came up with this easy solution. (Which also happens to be cheap)

It's a planter. Made out of a box. Easy as.

Get together:

-A wooden fruit box. (You can go to the market, ask nicely and they'll just give them to you)
-Any type of plastic. (I used a black thick plastic sheet I had at home, but plastic bags would work as well)
-Scissors
-Staple gun (+ staples, d'uh)
-Soil
-Plants, seeds, cactus or any type of plant or veggie you want to grow.
-Gardening gloves
-Gardening tools

Optional--> Give some color to your box!
-Paint
-Brush
Just paint your box any color you want. It doesn't have to be perfect, just have fun with it.
(Remember to use some newspaper under it to prevent paint stains)


 
This is so great! My family ( I'm 12) is moving out of our current apartment into a much bigger HOUSE so I wanted to start my own garden. This planter is so easy and doesn't even break my budget (yes, I promised to do everything except drive to the store)! Thankyou for posting this!!
