Recycle Old Furniture as garden planters Unique recycled garden planters

Recycle your old furniture, instead of throwing away old broken pieces of furniture you can reuse them unique creatively as garden planters. This beautiful concept has been going on since long time by eco friendly and eco awareness drives and this photo was shared by a friend on face book.
I have been using so many broken pots,  artifacts and sculptures as unique planters and even hand painted bottles that look awesum and also bring out the beauty in your greens! The gum boots and the helmet  is a classic one in my garden that are great conversation pieces!
for those who have large gardens it is difficult to bring out so many planters and this concept is so beautiful using recycled old furniture as planters. You not only benefit from the old furniture instead of throwing it you also do a bit for the mother earth by using these resources in a great way.
These also act as great focal points and beauty elements in your garden.
Do share your ideas and how you have been using this concept…

Few years back I would not have believed this but it happened in front of my eyes! I dont know why,  but women carry more negative energy as compared to men regarding flowering plants. Some one just plucked a tomato fruit and tasted it, threw it and by evening the plant dried! Roses too do not take well to everyone. And I have lost some great ones by visitors or servants just randomly plucking flowers.
Actually they don't realize that flowers are a part of the plant. I always take permission before plucking a flower, and that too only rarely I do as flowers stay fresh longer on plants. Then gently take sharp scissors and cut the …
