A neat old potato basket form North Dakota makes a wonderful planter for coral belles and a hosta. Just lined it with a coco-fibre mat and filled with potting soil and the plants! Yes this is another piece of my mom's junk that I ended up with.

My basket was orginally used for dirty shop towels in a service station. Posted: 9:55 am on May 22nd
