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.
Do you have favorite planters that you want to share? My Facebook page fans did.
Here are some of my fan favorites:
From Diamond Victoria. Great planter of cacti and succulents!
Kelly Bear Shared this grouping of planters. It makes a nice secluded area in her garden.
This is a stunning selection of planters with small tables, a starfish and bird cage as accent pieces. I just love it. Thanks for sharing Liffin.
Kecia shared these adorable Blue jean planters for her stepmother and mother in law for mother’s day, using her son’s old jeans. What a special gift!
If you like blue jean planters, this is another cute idea that I found on The New Girl on The Blog. So cute.
This is such a rustic collection. Shared from page fan Liffin. Just love this arrangement and that weather vane is a great addition!
How creative can you get? Clogs planted with succulents and other pretties that are attached up a stucco wall. Thanks from Gardening Cook page fan Rene.
Marlene made this layered planter with graduated sized pots. I love those Caladiums at the top Marlene! Another version of this idea is the Topsy Turvy Planter.
Amanda shared her Guitar turned planter that has ivy growing from it! Music in the garden is a favorite theme of mine.
Beth has a great looking wishing well planter! I love the yellow and green tulips!
Another one from Beth – great use of a bicycle as a planter, and those painted saws on the fence add so much interest to the scene!
This is one of my favorites shared by Phyllis of Lemon Bean and Things. Phyllis decided to use a golf bag as a planter! You can view her tutorial for the planters by clicking on the link for her blog.
