You can use any upcycled container – just make sure to add drainage holes before planting up!
Gather your supplies
• Old tool caddy (or other container)
• Potting mix
• Small gravel
• Controlled-release fertiliser
You’ll also need
Drill and bits; scoop or trowel; garden fork
Step 1 Drill a few drainage holes in bottom of tool caddy or container, then spread a layer of gravel, 1-2cm thick.
Step 2 Half-fill container with potting mix.
Step 3 Scatter over controlled-release fertiliser and fork lightly into mix.
Step 4 Carefully remove plants from their pots. Start by planting several trailing plants along the front edge of container.
Step 5 Arrange daffodils prominently in centre of container so they are the stars of the display. Choose daffodils that still have unopened buds. Fill any spaces between daffodils with flowering annuals – we used purple angelonia, which will continue flowering into summer.
