Well, some of mine grows in containers!!
I like the interest different containers give to the garden, some give extra height, some give a small space to grow smaller plants, others let you grow things where there is no soil, whatever the reason I like containers, and the more unusual the better!
Here are some of the ones I have in my garden.....lots of pictures now follow!
old chimney pots
shallow terracotta pots for small plants
oh, an ordinary round pot:)
an old wooden barrel
pot made of slates and one covered with moss
small mossy trough with hostas and glass balls
Grandmas old sink with bricks that look a bit like a skull:)
and another one used as a pond
galvanised dolly tub.....also Grandmas
supermarket wine cooler wth tiny lily pads
conventional hanging basket with gnome
blue and white enamel bowl
pale blue enamel bucket
tall yellow pots lurking in the undergrowth
old metal tray
rusting metal hanging pot
newest container.....giant galvanised jug
with small clematis and obelisk
there is also a basket with sea washed bricks sitting on a railway sleeper pillar
an old watering can
an old French chimney pot amongst the black grass
and last but not least there is an owl and mushrooms!
Hope you enjoyed the container tour of my garden!!
