Way back in March we decided to plant up an old tin bath that was in the back garden just taking up space and the front of the house was in need of a bit more kerb appeal.
We already had two dolly tubs planted up outside the front door and we thought that the long bath would look prefect between them, under the window. We decided that the grey of the galvanised planters would really complement the silvery green of plants like lavender and rosemary.
Here they are in late summer – over a foot tall, in full flower, with the Virginia creeper either side turning that beautiful crimson! How do you think it looks?
Our next project will involve reinstating the iron railings that once enclosed the front of the house. This will provide a contained, private space for lots more containers then!
