I had a couple of old washing bowls that were ready for the bin. But I decided to put them to good use instead. I drilled holes in the bottom of the tubs, added stones and old crockery for drainage and filled them with compost. Then I planted my favourite flowers in them and chose a perfect spot in the garden. I think my new washing-up planters look wonderfully bright and cheerful.
