    This different collection of vintage items for gardening are great. They really give a garden a sense of individuality. Each of the is fun. Just today I was pondering how to upcycle plain ugly plastic planters. Decided to let it go for this year and just hang them in their plain blah glory.

      I love all of these as well and you know what, sometimes it’s also good to just let things be and enjoy them as they are! Plastic planters can be so pretty too!

    I am loving this article right now. I am deep in backyard mode with planting and making new patio. So not having to go to the store and buy another thing…….is right up my alley!

    These ideas for garden planters are all so clever and unique. I think the drawers mounted on the old ladder are my favorite. But, I think the tiny succulent garden in the wall-mounted ladle is super-cute, too.

    These are all so lovely Katrin and it always amazes me just how creative people are. The colander idea is just brilliant, it’s got built in drainage holes and it looks stunning and that little wagon planter, too cute. Thank you for including the vertical garden in the mix too

    Katrin some of these ideas left me with my jaw on the floor. The shoe storage hanging thingie is really amazing. I am no gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but all these pretty ideas would inspire even me to try my hand at growing some flowers! Thanks for including my idea. This is a great collection.

      I know, hey? Same here! And even if it means to use fake flowers and plants, I’d love to have all of these planters!! Thanks for stopping by Mary, your grill planter is so clever!
