Railing Boxes and Mini-Greenhouses

Post  mjk12 on 4/25/2010, 1:00 pm

I built these boxes last week, stained them, and mounted them. Yesterday, I put gravel on the bottom, filled them with potting soil, and planted all sorts of flower seeds.

Here are my mini-greenhouses. I punched holes in these plastic containers and used hanger wires to hold them down.

I will keep everyone posted.

Those boxes look really nice! I love the little plastic containers you are using as greenhouses. Great idea!

Your boxes look great and I never would have thought of using the little containers and holding them down with hanger wires!
Be use to keep us up to date when they start to grow!
Thanks for sharing with us.

Put the mini-greenhouses on last night

Had to due to the frost. I went out and watered this morning and everything seemed fine, but it is cool today, so I left the mini-greenhouses on all day.
