Container Gardening Ideas: Model T Ford Truck Used as Planter

Here in the Container Gardening For You home town of Hudson, QC, there is a super little garage.

They specialize in restoring classic cars -- many beauties have rolled out of there in the years that we've lived here, especially Ford Mustangs.

This old Model T truck sits outside the garage.

They decorate it seasonally, but last summer was the first time I've seen it used as a container flower garden!

It looks really lovely, with Geraniums and Busy Lizzies standing out against the red paint of the truck. Nothing too exotic -- but when you're dressing an antique vehicle as a planter, you don't need to be too clever to make a strong impact!
