Upcycling your Gift of Nature Box into a planter

How to upcycle your Gift of Nature Box into a planter...

To turn your box into a planter to place in your home, all you need is the following:

  • 1 gift of nature box
  • Recycled bag
  • Scissors
  • Compost
  • Plants
  • A small watering can

Turn your box into a planter by simply adding compost into your box, after first lining the inside with a heavy duty plastic bag, this is to prevent wet soil permanently sitting next against the wood. You can use your imagination to great a genius piece of interior design, or create a fresh garnish box that would be the envy of any gin drinker. We have planted ours with here with Thyme, Sage, Mint and a little lemon verbena. Place in a light place such as a windowsill and water regularly.


  1. Remove the lid of your box and the wooden neck holder
  2. Line the inside of your box by recycling an old plastic bag by cutting into a rectangle
  3. Place the liner inside your box, fold and pleat the plastic and weigh down with compost
  4. Select your plants, and plant into the compost
  5. Top up with additional compost and fill up to 1 cm below the rim of the box and gently water in your plants
  6. Keep you plants watered regularly
