Find new and creative ways to liven up your garden! Here are 12 unusual flower pots that you can easily plant in. So before you throw out what you think is old junk, take a fresh look at it and think about how you might be able to re-purpose it in your own garden!
When thinking about repurposing old items into pot plants, have a think about how you can line them (maybe with plastic sheeting) and ensure there is adequate drainage for what you’re planting.
1. Old Chest of Drawers
Don’t throw out your old chest of drawers just yet, it could be your latest feature on your balcony.
2. Old Heels
By far the most unusual pot plant but there is really no need to let a good pair of heels go to waste!
3. Old Bicycle
An old bicycle actually works so well for a pot plant because it can add a vintage yet romantic flair to your garden or coffee shop.
4. Bird Cage
The bird cage is a useful way to add colour to your garden and you can complement the flower colours to the bird cage.
5. Wine Bottles
The love for wine has gone viral nowadays but now you can put the bottle to use, in your garden!
6. Cork Screws
If you have a collection of corkscrews they finally have a purpose, in your garden! Now you can see how much champagne you really drink!

This is my favourite because it has a great amount of space to plant a beautiful array of flowers and it looks so unique. The blue and white adds a Mediterranean vibe – Greece anyone?
10. Car Tier
A colourful and fun idea that the kids can help you with.
How cute are these? This is a great feature for gumboots the kids have grown out of or that no longer have any use.
Bring your old books to life! This is an unusual pot plant to use on a side table to add a bit of greenery to the house.
