Let's pot it up!
Measure the Inside. determine how many plants or pots are needed, the approximate size, and then shop for plants, containers, and saucers. How you pot them up depends on what you find at the nursery and the look you want.
Protect the inside. Use a plastic liner or plant saucer to protect the inside from water damage.
Plant it up!!! Drop the plant(s) into the thrift shop find. Make sure it looks full and you don't see any gaps. I'm using a hanging basket of scaevola because it fills the baby carriage with one spilling plant that will drape over the sides.
