A tip for using your old pair of boots

don't throw away your old boots tun them into planters. These are an old pair of blundstones. Much loved and well used, I couldn't part with them! So I turned them into a container to grow my chives in. and as you can see they are doing very well. Just put in a little layer of gravel and then your potting mix. No need to add holes for drainage as these are an old pair of boots and water leaches out slowly through the seams and any holes on the soles.
You don't have to grow chives and small pant will work well, parsley, a strawberry plant, pansies, violas, cat grass, thyme and lawn chamomile.
