Take that old shower caddy and put it to good use as a hanging herb or succulent garden.
After our bathroom renovation I had a spare shower caddy, just taking up space and doing nothing useful. I thought about hanging it over the tap in the backyard to hold soap for handwashing then saw a picture of one being used as a hanging basket.
You will need:
1 hanging shower caddy
Step 1. Line the basket/s of your shower caddy with coconut fibre. Make sure it is at least 2cm thick and covers the entire basket area. It has to hold potting mix and seedlings.
Step 2. Fill the baskets with potting mix and water. Plant your seedlings.
Step 3. Hang your basket against a wall, off a verandah railing or from the fence.
You'll be growing your own fresh herbs and repurposing something that would otherwise have gone to landfill. Oh, you'll save money on a hanging basket or pot too.
