I just found a rusty porcelain tub at a sale for $2.00 so of course, I had to plant it. I used some of my dishes from my stash and planted them with Allysum, Moss Rose, Verbena and Violets. I put gravel in the bottom of the teapot and teacup for drainage. I also drilled holes in the bottom of the tub.Still debating if I should spray paint the tub with a pastel color.

    I agree with L. Duclos - it is perfect the way it is! I also would not change a thing!

      @Keri I 've recently discovered that if the porcelain on enamelware chips, the metal underneath could be made with lead or cadmium, both heavy metal poisons which make the containers unsafe for food but absolutely fine for plants and flowers except herbs.

    I have an almost identical pot given to me by a neighbor. It was mother's from their old farm. I love having a piece of local history and have planted fushia geraniums interspersed with blue moon lobelias or pansies in the past :)
