What could I do with some big flowerpot?

I have 9 empty flowerpots (some square, some round, etc.) because I planted in the ground the trees I'd got in them. Now I don't know what to do with them. They are 50x50x50 cm more or less.

    Water lillies (Nymphae) will flourish in a depth of 50 cm. The bottom 20-25 cms should have mud and the rest can be water. But they do need a lot of sunlight. Also, if you have mosquitoes then they will breed in the water. Either add tiny fish or put in a couple of drops of neem oi (Azadirachta indica). It doesn't affect the plant at all but the mosquitoes avoid it.

    If you feel like a whimsical project, there is plenty of really charming fairy garden inspiration here. A big pot is a great space to start your own!

    For a shabby look don't paint them, or if you prefer paint them, then purchase a round piece of glass the correct size, lay on top of the planter and use for a side table outside or inside. You could also turn two upside down, place one on each end of a board and make a bench.

    you could add some glass over the two square ones if tall enough and make an outside table...or you could combine them and make a fun fountain with some clear tubing and a small pump and added parts/ set them at different levels to run into each other...just my thoughts

    Thank you!!! I'd thought about the table with a glass top, but It will be very heavy to move (to clean around for example). The fountain is another idea I like. I can do a fountain with a pond in the botton. :-) Thank you again, and when I'll have something done I'll post some photos.

    Pots are great for growing a lot of vegetables and herbs. And you can move them inside when it freezes and continue gardening all winter if you are in a mild winter spot.
