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.
