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.
