wall of flowers

Post  Josh on 5/31/2010, 10:16 am

If you take this idea from this....post

and if you take this idea from this....post

Put them together and I got this...



this was a family project
I made all the recycled self watering flower pots from soda bottles
my dad fastened them to the wood palate
my mom planted the flowers in them

Thank you to peanutgallery and trukrebew for the great ideas

Looks great Josh! Please post a middle of the season picture and a late season picture. Your wall of flowers should be even more pretty and I would like to see it. I have an ugly fence that could use some help. Do you make house calls? hee, hee

Ok Josh, now that you have made that amazing wall!! The close ups are lovely.
What two ideas did you combine and how did you make them self watering? Did you find instructions? I really like this idea, Im fishing for info Smile

Ha-v-v if you click on this...instructions..it is a link to how to make the soda bottle self watering pots

and If you click on this....wall...it is a link to some pictures of some plants hanging on a wall

I don't know why but the links are in black when I post it, and they don't show up good so its hard to tell they are links,but just click on those two words and they will take you to the other post.
