Wash day?  Nah, planting day.  The old wash board adds extra visual interest to the wash tub planter.  Planted with yellow daisies, trailing vines, coleus and brightly colored pansies.  This space has light shade and all the plants are tolerant of shade.

If you plant coleus, remember they make excellent and hearty houseplants if you need to take them in for winter.

Have a wheelbarrow with a hole in it? Give it a second life as an old wheelbarrow planter!

 

If the hole is too large, just place a piece of metal over the hole and cover the bottom with plastic. Fill with dirt and get planting.
