With the weather warming up, we all have gardening on our minds. I think it's a rite of spring to pot up some pretty flowers or plant some veggies. And even if you don't have much space, you can still grow quite a lot using containers.
Plain ole pots work great, but it's even more fun to get creative with your containers. The possibilities are endless and the sky's the limit!
Creative Container Gardening Ideas
from Cottage at the Crossroads
Today I'm linking up our repurposed grill planter that we created way back in 2011. Really? Has it been that long ago?
The grill planter caught the attention of a magazine editor, and the next year a photo appeared in the June 2012 issue of Ladies Home Journal. Oh, those were exciting times! To this day, we still use the grill planter in our garden. She's lost her legs but she still sits in our herb bed.
Remember the topsy turvy galvanized buckets that I created several years ago?
They've been potted up many different ways depending on the season, and I need to get them replanted with some summer annuals. You can click on the photo to find the tutorial on how these were made.
Another idea that I'm linking up is the post I did on how to mount flower baskets on wooden posts.
About 6 years ago, we build my mother an apartment in our backyard, and I was searching for a way to "dress up" the sidewalk leading back to her little house. So I came up with this idea of mounting baskets onto wooden posts. It's such a great way to add some vertical interest and color, and gives my mother something pretty to look at while she's sitting on her porch.
I hope you enjoyed this post on creative garden container ideas and I look forward to your comments and feedback.
