Any container gardeners out there? Can I see a show of hands? Oops, guess that won’t work, will it?
I prefer to garden in containers. I live in the land of clay soil, so the only plants that go in the ground are planted by my gardener/husband, the guy with the strong arms and BIG shovel.
I’ve shared a few of my ideas for containers with personality.
Believe it or not, there are GOOD IDEAS out there in the world that aren’t MINE. Lots of them, actually.
Here are a few more frugal but clever container ideas.This is a thrift store light fixture turned upside down and filled with potting soil. Cool, huh?
How many of these have you seen at the dollar store? No drainage problems here. And it’s PORTABLE. Just move the plants wherever the party happens to be!
I love the look of these galvanized buckets. Find them at home stores or garage sales.
An old tool box? Adorable, and available at antique stores and flea markets.
More buckets, but this time as a window “box”! Now, if only I can get the guy with the shovel to drill holes in the house to hang them. Probably NOT gonna happen.
Basil planted in a discarded tea kettle? How perfect for a kitchen garden!
I’d love to hear your ideas for clever containers! Share them in the comments.
Don’t forget tomorrow is Trash to Treasure Tuesday. Get those projects ready to share!
