Recently I got sent some things in a huge styrofoam box, and when I posted a picture on Instagram, a friend of mine told me I could make a garden from it… so I immediately got all excited and googled and found these instructions on the Gardening Australia site. I totally could! Huzzah!
I honestly (being as naive as I am in the ways of horticulture and general growing of things), thought you could just put some potting mix in and grow some stuff.
Apparently, you have to make drainage holes (duh!), cover those drainage holes with something so the dirt doesn’t fall out (oh my lord Stacey, really?) and then prop them up on bricks or something to let the air flow. Really. Not even hard, and pure common sense.
