DIY Planters

DIY planters are hardly a new idea, but using things that would otherwise be chucked is one of my favourite things about gardening. I think it adds an interesting and eclectic look to the garden. These planters are parts from an old bread maker that we had that gave up the ghost. Not bad eh?

I also have an old wheelbarrow waiting to be planted up. Should look great with something climbing up the legs.
