This is an old wire hanging basket, covered in moss, filled with soil, and plugged with old coco liner to keep the soil  in.  I then wired sedum sections to the outside.  It is now a living domed roof for the future fairy nursery currently under construction.  All I actually purchased was soil, sedums, and moss.  I love to reuse old stuff.  Which is perfect for my pack rat nature.

Can you run wire from top to bottom or twine to grow beans, cukes or a flower vine like Morning Glory or Black Eyed Susan vine up it?

Good morning everyone, I have a rusted metal porch swing frame that I would like to repurpose into my gardens, looking for some ideas and how to. Would appreciate any ideas, tips and resources.

Thanks Glenda... I really enjoy all the things I have seen people do with pallets. Very functional and I personally think they are attractive as well!

I had to share these tables made out of old planters.  They were in a seating area at a local farm store coffee and pie store.

Donna, I love the flowers.  I have never seen anyone make flowers out of hubcaps.  Very creative.

Entered my first orchid show with this orchid. I was writing up cards, not really taking much notice of the judges fussing around my orchid. Turns out that the parentage of this orchid goes back to the species by only 4 generations and it has won…
