Bundt Cake Planter

45 Minutes
I have a small bistro table on my deck but because of my need to add a little something to most everything I do I had to come up with a solution for this small table so whatever I put on it wouldn't get in the way of guest sitting at it. I ran across a used bundt cake pan at the Goodwill and it was perfect for the table, even the hole was the perfect size to slip an umbrella through it. I simply sprayed the pan black and planted flowers. To see more of this project please feel free to stop by laurie jones home!
Once the pan was dry I added potting mix and an assortment of flowers that included the vinca vine, white begonias, white petunias and coleus.
I started with a simple bundt cake pan I found at the Goodwill for about $1.00.
The pan easily came apart and I sprayed it with black Rust-Oleum’s Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2x.

    As a gardener that used to plant custom containers that my customers would bring to me, I thought I would share this idea. Whenever I made a custom container, I always made sure there were drainage holes and before I put any soil in it, I lined the bottom of them with landscape fabric pieces cut to fit (they can overlap a little)

    This served 2 purposes, one it allowed for drainage. Two it stopped the soil from coming out of the container. I hope this helps. Happy Gardening

    I used this idea over 21 years ago for my wedding on the deck of my house at the beach. I had cloths on the tables so drain holes were a no-go. I used disposable jello molds, took the growing flowers out of their nursery pots and planted them in the molds a week before the wedding. They were beautifully in bloom by the big day. Quick like a bunny, I took the flowers out of the molds and put them in the ground where they happily thrived. Thank you for the trip down memory lane.
