Suitcase Planter

These plants are on the move! Cultivators Design and Landscape loves to explore new planter ideas and the suitcase planter is one of our favorites! Anyone can do this! And again the possibilities are endless!!! Herbs, veggies, annuals, sedums, you name it! But remember this is a shallow planter and will probably needed to be watered daily! Happy Planting! :)

    Tacky toilet - I have an old bathtub, bathroom sink over an old toilet (seat removed) all grouped together and when planted and in bloom, they are gorgeous. If the plants cooperate this year, I'll post a picture. Last weekend my 2 yr old twin grandsons loosened the soil in the bathtub with their bulldozers and only walked away to get a drink. Past 2 years I've grown veggies in the tub.

    I think if the toilet was painted a really wild color..like purple and green stripes, it would be more appealing and look less tacky. How about poka dots ?

    With the suit cases..how would you protect the cases from the weather and not fall apart?

      I was wondering the same thing. I have an old Turk that I may try. It has been in the weather and is looking bad "rustic" but I don't want it to fall completely apart.

    Terra, The suit case will fall apart over time.....you could put a sealer on them to make them last awhile longer.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
