repurposed wheelbarrow: the succulent garden

Too good to throw away, this old metal wheelbarrow makes a great home for succulents.  Requiring little water, this is an easy care garden, only needing a slight trim when things get out of control.  When the aeoniums at the front get too big, I snap them down to size and start them growing again.  Larger plants can be transferred into other beds and cuttings from bigger plants can be started back in here - quite a lifecycle we've got going!

Do you repurpose secondhand items in your garden?
If so, I'd love to see some pictures of your creations.  
Please leave me a link in the comments and I will come and visit.

    1. It's great Leonie, easy to move when I need to as well, although it doesn't drive particularly smoothly!
