Such good ideas and they look great...a great way to re-purpose items...
I have gone out to take some update pics a few times, but ended up pulling weeds, getting too hot, started raining, had to trim something... will get back to the fun "taking-pics" part of the summer again soon I hope.
I got everything watered yesterday evening & went out this morning with camera...
Grill & lid "planters"
Wall sconce light planter:
Double-decker clay pots get so dry, slower growing plants in them:
Fry basket planter:
Wire mesh cricket basket:
"Cage 'o' Epiphyllum"
Wire basket lined with landscape fabric:
Tiffany you are so inventive,..every plant looks at home in your converted items,..well done,..you have stirred my imagination to use some things i have
I love them, especially the fryer, frying pan and my fav...the cricket basket!!!
TY so much for the kind words!
nice works <3
Looking at the landscape in winter allows me to see the "bones" of the garden more clearly. I have this cupola plonked in the middle of the ferns behind our pool. Interesting piece but very poorly used. It is even a little off kilter!
I plan to relocate it the spring to one of my gardens and train a clematis vine to grow over it.
Oh, I would love to have cupola in the garden. Had a slight chance of buying one at a garage sale a few years ago but the pickup we had at the time wasn't big or heavy duty enough....probably a good thing since it was about 6 feet tall and wide in proper ratio. Pick up we have now could handle it with no problem....but I have not found another at a good price.
I love the frying pan planter, I'm going to have to try that!
This hydroponic garden is actually in a lettuce container that is set in a shoe box for the darkness.
I put a light in the cellar yesterday. I am going to plant tomato seeds
Here is an 3/9/18 update on my above post.
Looks good hummerbum. All look healthy.
