Living garden wall planter

It is no secret that I adore my garden and I always have my eye out for a bargain planter. I do adore upcycled planters. There are a fair few on my Thrifty Home Pinterest board if you fancy a look. Pinterest is a great place to be inspired by upcycling projects

Follow Becky Goddard-Hill’s board Thrifty Home on Pinterest.

Plants really do look good in pretty much anything!

I (along with two other blogger) have been challenged this week by Amanda from The Ana Mum Diary to find a beautiful planter. I decided to make sure mine was a thrifty purchase too.

I have found a lovely planter idea that is on budget and just a little bit different. it is a living wall planter.

Much as I love garden centres I do say look around for planters as supermarkets and homeware stores often have more thrifty options.

I think it looks like live garden art!

It is from Wilkinsons and costs £15 which I think is quite a good deal for something so ‘different’

Designed for outdoor walls only this planter can be used with succulents, foliage plants and annuals.

What would I fill it with…hmmm…

maybe a whole host of trailing white petunia

or perhaps these beautiful fuchsia

You could even mix your colour s and plants up whatever you wish on this living canvas. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

 

So this is my planter. Have a look at the planters chosen by …..

Amanda at the Ana Mum Diary (vintage)

Jen at Love Chic Living (contemporary)
