Do you remember in my last post I mentioned that I had picked up an old colander at the Thrift Shop?
It was a big 'ole dented thing, and it was also missing it's handles, but for 75 cents I couldn't leave it there. I kept picturing the family dinners it must have helped with over the years, and thought it deserved a second life -
and maybe a new career.
So I went ahead with the plan to make it into a pot for the garden.
First I lined it with a coconut liner.
I was then going to fill it with potting soil, but I realized the plant I wanted to put in there fit perfectly in the pot it was already in, so I just laid it in there, and
It looked lovely!
The annual I chose for it is the very pretty Lantana. These are the sweetest flowers, and I have never grown them before, but so far they are very hardy, they love the full sun of my yard, and they seem to be happy as pie in their new home.
And that is the story of the colander pot.
