Don’t throw away the old, the ugly and the seem­ingly use­less – find them a new pur­pose and give your green­ery an ex­tra edge

3 Chill out with a pewter bowl and match old china crock­ery with the colours of your veg­e­ta­tion. Plant: Or­na­men­tal chilli (Cap­sicum an­nuum).

1 Weigh up your op­tions and turn beau­ti­ful vin­tage kitchen scales into a unique pedestal. Plant: Hindu rope (Hoya com­pacta).

4 Com­bine soft with hard by mix­ing frond plants with cast iron. Note the old iron lace col­umn. Per­fect! Plant: Golden cane palm (Dyp­sis lutescens).

2 Glass is classy so make jars or vases ter­rar­i­ums. Plants: Rain­bow ginny (Peper­o­mia clusi­ifo­lia) and mother-in-law’s tongue (San­se­vieria tri­fas­ci­ata).

Dif­fer­ent tex­tures and shapes are mixed not only with the plants (hoya, fig and aloe) but also the con­tain­ers.
