1 PIPING HOT POTS
Add instant energy to your garden or courtyard with spray-painted terracotta pipes. Find them on trading sites like gumtree.com.au or at building salvage yards.
Apply a terracotta sealer to the pipes, then two coats of exterior acrylic paint. When dry, simply pop plastic plant pots inside. If the lip of the pot doesn’t wedge into the pipe, add an upturned brick for it to sit on.
Go for a mix of foliage plants and bloomers and just swap them whenever you fancy a change!
To prevent soil from washing out of the pipes during watering, cut geotextile fabric to fit the pipe base (see above) and secure it with construction adhesive.
