Football Container Garden

football planterAnother interesting container gardening idea is the recycled football hanging basket. Not only does it give you a waterproof container to stop things dripping on your table but could easily be used for scented herbs or flowers to add an aroma to the room to freshen the place up. You can learn how to build this one over at instructables

We live out in the Philippines and these plastic drink containers can pretty much be found all over the place disguarded and dumped. The idea of reusing them for not only container gardening as seen in the photo but also even for transportation as “watering pots”. Makes a lot of sense as well as gets rid of disregarded plastics, making them more useful and recycled. But also even if a flower vendor you could just stick these under a flower display to keep the flowers watered while awaiting customers. Great idea!
