I had some time this morning to tackle a couple of planting projects. Two projects that have been sitting in their original plastic pots for a few weeks now. Little did I know these projects would take about 5 minutes each to complete…
This tropical plant was bought several weeks ago and has been sitting in the living room in this plastic pot!
And I bought this fabulous bamboo tortoise shell planter at an antique mall longer than I’ve had the plant!
Planting this Peace Lily (which I had never seen this variety before) and placing it in its new home took 5 minutes!
I added some moss to cover the dirt and as you can see it has a new leave unfolding (it’s the second one)!
Here she now sits in the same spot but in a much nicer home!
And I added these natural details…I picked up the piece of wood in front of my home, and the oyster shells are leftover from a little project I just completed!
This next project literally took 5 minutes! I have had this terra-cotta planter for some time! I thought the ivy was perfect!
I first filled the bottom of the terra-cotta pot with packing peanuts. I learned this trick at one of my garden club meetings. It makes for a much lighter container since you’re not using as much soil!
And it’s complete! Two different types of ivy…I loved the topiary style for height, and the cascading ivy fills the base!
This container has its own patina which I adore!
Overall, I’m pleased as punch with these super easy 5 minute plant makeovers! I can’t believe I waited this long…lesson learned!
What have you been planting this summer?
Enjoy the day!
