Fun of Recycling

Many people think gardening is a full time job requiring lot of time and care. But in reality it is not.Not when you start with only foliage plants. When I started I had only five pots of colourful foliage later on I moved on to grow flowering plants.In this post I will show you how to RECYCLE,REUSE and REDUCE in your garden. I like to use all the unwanted things which is usually thrown out can be used in the garden. be it kettle. A dead tree trunk or whatever you fancy all can be arranged creatively.Even an old flush tank is not spared here

This is a sapota tree trunk used as a hanger for hanging pots

PVC Pipes are used to hold the kettle surrounded by folliage

Along with spanish IVY ( variegated money plant) I planted "bleeding heart" vine to get an astonishing look.

This is an old flush tank with its shiny porcelain body I was reluctant to part with it.

Along with some driftwood Adenium Obessum is planted which requires lot of sunlight and a little water.I placed some floating plants.

I am linking this post to the Green Thumb Decor party going on till April at Patty's blog.

Hope you enjoyed this post
