Thrifty Finds for the Garden
I love using items that I can reuse in the garden as planters.

The bold red pansies against the oversized, galvanized Metal farm funnel look terrific. Bury the funnel halfway in the dirt and plant your garden flowers. Simple, easy and elegant.
Old Bird Cage
This bird cage is amazing. Plant your over wintered geraniums in early spring and by midsummer the entire bird cage is flowing with greens and flowers.
A roasting pan found from a tag sale makes the most interesting planting container. The lid placed behind the pan makes the greens pop.
Repurpose an old birdhouse with low growing annuals and greens. Believe me, they look terrific.
An old metal produce basket with handles holds a variety of plants. You can plant a greater variety of flowers and vines.
Wash Tub & Washboard
Wash day? Nah, planting day. The old wash board adds to the visual interest.
Second View of the Wash Tub
Another view of the wash tub. Yellow daisies, trailing vines, coleus and brightly colored pansies. This space has light shade and all the plants are tolerant of shade. If you plant coleus, remember they make excellent and hearty houseplants if you need to take them in for winter.
