I tend to get a little tired of using the same old pots and containers for my flower gardening year after year. And let’s face it, most flower pots are a little boring and mundane, so when I found this toy truck at a yard sale I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
Nothing is safe from potting soil around here!
I taped the tailgate door down to keep the dirt from dumping out the back. Dump trucks tend to do that.
Then I added a small layer of stones for drainage,
an even smaller layer of charcoal just because I had it left over from my terrarium project
and a really thick layer of potting soil.
Then planted some Limelight Japanese Stonecrop in it
and I was ready to haul my load.
How is your planting going this year?
