•Choose a selection of everyday household items - anything that can hold soil will work. Try a teapot, an enamel watering can or a metal bucket.

•To aid drainage, put a layer of broken crockery or broken up pieces of polystyrene at the bottom of each. Top with a good potting compost.

•Gently take your plants out of the plastic pots they came in. Create a well in the compost and push each plant into place, packing the compost around the sides, then water.
