Beautify your Tandem Apt. w/a Recycled Planter

(Hummed to the tune of “There was an old lady”.) There was a hydrangea that lived in a shoe….

No, seriously. You can make a planter out of anything in or around your Tandem apartment in Davis. I have a neighbor who grew tiny little plants in abalone shells. If you have a seed, a couple of scoopfuls of dirt, and something to hold them in, you too can have a green thumb to boast about.

When you see so many pictures of productive gardens in big backyards, it’s easy to forget that gorgeous gardens also happen in small yards and surprising places. These 15 repurposed planters remind us that you don’t need a lot of space and new materials to start growing your own garden; all you need is a little bit of ingenuity and resolve.
