Even if you can’t afford a designer garden you can still create a fun and fashionable plant display that looks like a million bucks! A quick scavenge in your closet or a run to the thrift store will get you started, with purses or shoes to serve as planters. Add a bit of potting mix and some small plants and you’ve got backyard, balcony or front porch couture. Even old sneakers and work boots look chic when planted up!
