Inspiration : Ideas For Six Unusual and Colorful Planters

If you are a mother and a blogger, then the chances you’ve not heard of the talented Mad Momma are bleak; her home is a visual retreat. Pictures of her home and garden , replete with casual references to recycling and gardening tips, have been a great inspiration for me. Thanks to her, the number of potted plants in my balcony grew from one to ten within a month bringing a lot of cheer, happy memories (watering with my son daily), and greenery into our lives.

I wanted to showcase how everyday objects can be used as planters and I knew MM had creatively used a zillion such things in her backyard. She was kind enough to share pictures of six planters from her indoor garden. Most of the containers have been reused as planters as they were originally intended for something else. I present to you her best picks..

She has used the bottom half of a Bisleri bottle inside the cup, tea pot and basket as a lining layer to hold the potting sand.

So, think twice before dumping that old coffee mug or a flower basket into the bin. A handful of potting soil, a fern/money plant, and a few minutes of your time is all that it will take. And just imagine the huge impact it will bring to your living room!
