Now that we’re in the thick of Spring, let’s dig into a bit of gardening. Simone shares her DIY raised bed liner idea for the ASKHOLMEN wooden flower box, converting it into a raised bed instead of a plant stand. The ASKHOLMEN is pre-treated with a layer of semi-transparent wood stain. But the elements can be merciless, so keep the wooden planter looking good with the VÅRDA wood stain.
The Askholmen planter is a great looking planter however can’t be used without using plant in pots inside. I wanted to fill the whole planter with soil and plant. The Frakta blue bag is an almost exact fit.
