Wooden crates are perfect to use as planter boxes. Something about their design just immediately adds an extra touch of raw beauty for your garden. To convert your crate into a garden container, you first have to select your crate. You should also note that the size of your crate should depend on what you plan to plant. Second, if you’re using a recycled crate, you then have to clean it. Third, check for drainage. Fourth, line the crate. Fifth, you can now fill it with potting soil. Sixth and ultimately, plant it up.

You made a good point that having a plan against rotting will be quite important when using wooden crates for my plants. A lot of my plants recently died due to the heat of the summer drying out my soil. Maybe trying to cultivate plants in wooden crates will make things a lot more controlled in the long run.
Kindly let me know of the outcome. Would be very eager to share it here hopefully.
