Hubby got a new mail box today.. I saw i one of my garden magazines whwre you can use the ol mail box as a planter.. has anyone dne this?
What shape, size, material is it made of. You can grow in anything as long as it will hold soil, moisture and the growing plants have access to light. If it's on a pole think of varigated ivies. But tell the mailman first.
Did you get it made Deb?
What did you decide to plant in it?
It is off the post and down by my garden. I haven't driolled holes in the bottom yet but I am going to do that this week. I May repaint the mail box too.It is one of those JUMBO Mailboxes, not the normal size but a SUPER SIZED one.. I could plant a tomato in it! It is huge.. so I can plant almost anything in it!!!
I can just imagine a tomato growing in a mail box! :D
any other suggestions?
.. and isn't too heavy ... peas? Beans?
It would look neat to group the mailbox over the sideways bucket "spilling" plants out of it, and that stacked clay pots idea (it was in the old forum, remember? I thought you were the one that found it, but I'm not sure).
Good luck with the new project! :)
Yup.. the tipsy pots thing I got last year froma Birds and Bloom article. OK I do have broken pots and buckets that I can group together with the mailbox.
You all are so great!!!
