I love baths, and I love plants – add them together and what do you get? A tub brimming with life…

A bathtub is big enough to be turned into a small garden bed, where your vegetables can thrive without danger of being devoured by underground garden pests. Add in a vintage number and it looks quirky, plus is recycling too. Tick. Tick. All you need to grow vegetables in a bathtub is place it in a sunny location, fill it with nutrient rich soil and ensure proper drainage.⁠

Place a 1-inch layer of pea gravel in the bottom of the bathtub to improve drainage. Fill your tub to within two inches of the rim with the soil mix. When you place your plants in the soil, make sure each has enough space to grow. Consider your plants’ estimated mature size, and allow for plenty of elbowroom. Avoid overcrowding because there’s nothing worse than having to share your bath, unless you really want to, that is.⁠
