I garden mostly in containers as pretty much everything I put in the ground dies. I have no idea why that is. I do put things in the ground but only things I don't mind losing. I would mind losing my onions so I needed something big enough to plant them in. I searched garden centres but found nothing that was both big enough and affordable and was about to give up when I remembered this old cupboard.
Only once I had filled it with top soil did I realise it was hideous so I scrabbled around and found some left over paint from our recent kitchen overhaul. It looks much bluer in the sun than it does in the house, but I rather like it. Anyway, at last the onions are in. I do hope better late than never applies here.
