What Can You Do With a Smashed Rusty Tin Can?

Salvaged Garden 05.20.15
Don't throw it away! Make it into a rustic planter and fill it with succulent cuttings. I found this rusty treasure while hiking in the woods. I love all things rusty so there was no way I was going to leave it lying there. I knew I would find a purpose for it- and I did. The opening was very small so I filled it with a bit of soil and planted the tiny succulents and filled in with moss. I love unusual planters for my plants.

    I had heard rust will kill a plant. Do you have any problems with succulents in these rusty old things? I have a lot, I mean a lot of rusty items I want to use as planters for my succulents but don't want to kill them...
