Repurposed Planters with Anne-Marie Johnson

























Repurposing Tips:

  • Irrigation is the most important thing when repurposing.

  • Make sure the containers you're using have holes in the bottom to let the water drain or make the holes yourself using a large nail and hammer!

  • Also, think about making a false reservoir instead of drilling holes.  

  • A false reservoir is when you line the bottom of the container with stones (about 1 to 2 inches deep depending on the container size) to create a space for the water from the soil to drain and eventually evaporate.

  • Also, consider the materials of the container that you're using.

  • Repurposing a wood box or old wooden dresser isn't the best idea as wood molds very easily.

  • Also, wooden furniture is sealed so you run the risk of having toxins from the seal kill the roots of your plants.


Repurposing Container Ideas:
  • Teapots
  • Colanders
  • Aluminum buckets
  • Even gutters
