Add a letterbox to your garden



My house and my gardens are a fair distance apart. I have placed an old letterbox in the garden/orchard which is central to the vegie garden. This has saved me alot of time walking back and forth to the house which means more time gardening :). Often the hardware stores have a mail box that is the last one of its kind in the specials section or of course you could find one second-hand. I had this one lying around and painted it.

So whats in the box I hear you ask?

  • Gloves
  • Stanley Knife
  • Scissors
  • Soap
  • Hose Fittings
  • Seed Tags
  • Pencil
  • Seed Planter
  • Secateurs


Since taking the pic I have also added string and a small ruler. Of course you can add whatever suits you.


I just sat the box on a post and it has been there for a few months and no creatures have moved in.


Happy Gardening.
