We thought this project looked like toooo much fun not to share it with you.

Gather and old laundry hamper, scissors, soil, fertilizer and plants. 

Start by filling the hamper with 6" of soil.  Use a potting mix not the soil from your yard or garden.

If necessary use scissors to cut or expand holes in the side of the hamper for planting.

Gently position plants on their sides and pull the foliage forward through the hole in the hamper.

Sprinkle in some slow release fertilizer and cover with another six inches of soil.  Repeat above stops until hamper is full, capping it off with a crown of plants on the top.

How easy and cute is this project! 
To ensure that all sides get some direct sunlight place the hamper on a lazy suzan.  This makes pinning it around a breeze.
