Our local Oddbins (wine/beer shop) was closing down and we popped in to grab some bargains.  
Sadly the booze was mostly sold! But we found these lovely wine and port boxes for 2 each.



I got them home, drilled holes in the bottom (badly!!!)  
...and planted a courgette plant in one, and the other will be for spinach and lettuce. Smiley


***UPDATE***
A photo of the other container with various varieties of lettuce, and spinach.  (Around it are pots of rocket.)

It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

Very cute way to upcycle the boxes. Are they wood or heavy cardboard?

They're wood.  Proper planks of wood too, rather than mdf!
