In spring, most gardeners have a cluster of newly purchased plants waiting to be set in the ground. Here’s a way to make your new acquisitions an attractive feature until you plant them in containers or in the garden.
Set small, 3-in. pots of plants, like ground covers, into an old wooden soda bottle case. The dividers will keep the plants from tipping over, making them easier to water. Handles on the case also make it easier to carry the plants when you’re ready to plant. In the meantime, the case also makes a charming ornament in the garden for a few weeks at the beginning of the season.
