Container Garden in a Vintage Enamelware Tub

08.04.14
Take a look at my newest summer container garden! I put it together as the icing on the cake of long day of garden work. I used my favorite flowers color combo - yellow, purple & white and chose plants with varied textures. This makes a container more interesting. If you are planting a container garden make sure when to use plants that have the same sun & water needs. See my post http://www.mysoulfulhome.com/cant-contain-my... for more tips

    Do you have drill holes in the bottom of the tubs to let the water drain? I'm thinking of using them for a vegetable garden.

    I grew up on a farm, in the early days, this was called a dish pan, and still have a wash pan, that my mother used on the back porch for the men folks to wash their hands in before coming inside for dinner after working in the fields, its a smaller pan

    I love the look, but what do you do for drainage. Do you somehow drill holes in the bottoms?

    Hi Natalie, Thanks for your question. I did not have the heart to drill holes in the vintage tub. I used a combination of gravel & packing peanuts. You can read here for more details http://mysoulfulhome.com/cant-contain-myself...
