Container Gardening Ideas: Broken Doll's Head Used as Planter!

We're getting into David Cronenberg territory here! This one is going to give you nightmares for a while.

The single, staring, shocking pink eye is particularly disturbing to me for some reason.

It takes a special kind of mind to see a broken doll, and think of it as a smart place to plant something. But I have to applaud the imagination that led to this strange container garden.

Still, this little project is focusing on weird and wonderful recycled planters, and this is certainly an original use for an old child's toy. (And you thought the Barbie Convertible Dream Car planter was bizarre...)

From the looks of the photo, the doll's brain has been replaced by some kind of dwarf shrub. Anybody able to identify the plant for me? If so, please post a comment at the end of the page.

By using such ideas we can reduce the plastic waste. The process of recycling should be start from home. I will try to prepare a garden like this by using broken doll. It looks amazing.

It's a sedum!
by: Anonymous

That crazy looking doll was filled with a little sedum plant. It's face is now partially blackened by the sun and it's even more traumatizing than ever.
