 Those old things can make amazing and unique flower features, which beautify the home.

Ruth Banoba, a florist from Mulago, Kampala, suggests that at home, there can be so many unwanted items, which range from old furniture, kitchen ware, bathroom ware, shoes, bags, boxes.

These can be utilized very well other than those expensive clay and plastic pots on the market, yet they are very fragile and expensive to maintain.

Others include; children toys, poultry feeders, food sacks and soda crates, which can be put to use for a long period of time and make the compound look nice.


She, however, advises users to first wash the materials to be used as flower pots and ensure that they are very clean and are free from causing any harm to a person in a home
