Fans of the Gardening Cook share their favorite planters

I recently asked The Gardening Cook Facebook fans to submit their favorite planters

When it comes to creative planters, the sky seems to be the limit.  Almost anything with an opening can become a garden planter.

The Gardening Cook fans are an inventive group when it comes to thinking outside the box of normal pots.  

From cowboy boots, to denim jeans and birdcages, many unusual items got used to hold plants.
