My goal at the end of each container planting season is to end up with no leftovers. This year I was left with one plant. A beautiful Rex begonia. It has been sitting in my container garden (I did buy some for myself earlier) on my back porch in its sad little green plastic pot for a bit. This souped up version of many a grandma’s favorite deserved a 21st century home. So on a very hot afternoon, in my kitchen (appropriate for leftovers) with a little Ikea hacking, here’s what I did with my leftover.
Here’s what was used:
stainless steel ORDNING colander ($9.99)
sheet moss (mine was leftover) to line and prevent soil from seeping out when watered
Espoma organic potting mix (a great NJ company with a whole line of fab organic amendments)
Spanish moss (also left over)
