This is perfect for a small space like a window sill, especially for beginners who have caught the gardening big but lack the space. It's also an amazing way to use that old box you have been hoarding for years, say a tool box or a lunch box.

I love this idea of working with what you already have to add some greenery to your home or office! What a neat and resourceful craft idea.
