One of my junk garden purchases this spring was a vintage wooden Kiddie Gym swing.
I drilled drainage holes in the bottom of a small galvanized bucket and one small hole in the center bottom. This hole slides over a small head nail to anchor the pail to the swing. I also use this method to anchor pots to a stepladder in my flower border. If the pots are bigger I use a thicker, larger spike type nail.
I decided to purchase a Proven Winners white Diamond Frost annual for my little pail, and was pleasantly surprised that I got two plants for the price of one. The plastic starter pot also contained an orange Diascia.
Of course my gardening season is just starting in northern Minnesota, so I will have to show you how these little annuals fill in later on this summer.
I am about 95% done planting flowers. We have had a lot of rain and cool weather, and I'm a little behind. More photos to come soon.
I had to shorten the chains, and simply hung the chains on nails pounded into the deck rail.
Oh good! The sun has peeked out this afternoon.
I love fun and unexpected container gardens!
