Grab a vintage watering can from the garden to show off your flowers. Add a mason jar or vase filled with water when your watering can is worn and rotting. As a result, this will help to keep the flowers hydrated.

Using old and rusty galvanized washtubs is a fabulous way to display flowers and herbs.

When planting directly into a container, drill drainage holes in the bottom of your galvanized tubs and buckets. Then, add an inch of pea gravel to the bottom to facilitate drainage.

These reclaimed galvanized containers are a stunning focal point in any home or garden.

Tuck your succulents into a repurposed turkey feeder to enjoy a fun and unique display.

Old shoes and booties are such a sweet option for your garden flowers. They are certainly a unique idea that will make a statement in your garden.

Silver teapots are one of my very favorite container ideas and certainly add a special touch.

This antique silver trophy cup displays these blooms so beautifully.
