cast con­crete in

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Outdoor Inspiration -

Cast-offs can be a great source of quirky pots and plant­ing con­tain­ers for in­no­va­tive gar­den­ers. From old tins and buck­ets to laun­dry troughs and cop­pers, the pos­si­bil­i­ties are im­mense. The for­mer func­tion of this planter, spot­ted at cen­tral Vic­to­ria’s Black­wood Ridge Nurs­ery, was as the bowl of a con­crete mixer. Coun­try clear­ing sales and auc­tions are good places to search for sim­i­lar items. That in­dus­trial cast-off that no­body’s in­ter­ested in just might make an in­ge­nious and thor­oughly prac­ti­cal planter – but al­ways re­mem­ber to add a few drainage holes be­fore plant­ing up.
