Metal Basket Container Planting

By webesemps
July 22, 2016

There are many metal objects available to use for container planting, such as tubs, troughs, cans, buckets, cups, bowls, etc. While browsing through an antique mall, I found a metal basket that I thought was quite distinctive. The question I asked myself was, "What do I do with it?" My answer: "Plant succulents, of course!"

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

Wow! What a great idea! I think using the screen material was great -- I may use it for some projects of my own. This looks like it was professionally done - you could win an award! Thanks!

Beautiful!!!! I have done this before but I didn't think about using the screen idea. How smart! I just used the coconut liner. The screen will last much longer. Thanks for a great idea! I tip my hat to you.
