Fun and Clever Container
Gardening Ideas

These hilarious container gardening ideas just show that there is no end to the genius of the green-thumbed brigade!

Just because an old tire, shoe, bathtub, toilet, or child's toy has reached the end of its useful life, doesn't mean it should be thrown in the recycling. As these amazing pictures prove, if something holds soil, then it can be used to grow things in -- including full-size cars and trucks!

We'd love to hear from you if you have done this too! Use this simple form to send us a description and photo(s) of your recycled planters.
