The first step was to line the inside with some old white wire garden fencing. I think it softens the look of the chunky old metal. It will also hold in the moss & dirt better!
At the local greenhouse, I bought a 3 foot x 3 foot piece of moss basket liner. It cost about $6.50, so I was careful to make a template out of plastic. I didn't want to cut it wrong & have to buy more!
Then it was put in, trimmed, filled with good potting soil. I planted an Asparagus Fern, Red Spike & Wandering Jew. It's a heavy old piece, so it will have to be a ground planter.
Thanks for looking. I hope I've inspired you to "get junky" in your garden! This post is listed on a Friend Friday link, please check out the other entries at . . .Trash to Treasure Decorating
