IKEA Algot made into growing baskets

Materials: ALGOT storage system x2

I have the world’s tiniest garden and try to grow as many vegetables and fruits as I can. I’ve used heavy duty wire garage shelving to hold vegetables in pots but the limited wall space meant I had to find something small to add on extra plants. When you can’t grow out, you grow up!

So I lined Algot baskets with hanging basket liners and planted them up with peppers, and then tied them to the heavy duty shelving with plastic ties. Voila, ten new pots that don’t need shelves to stand on!
