I’m drawn to rusty stuff. Tubs, buckets, old tools, cans, and even bird cages can be used as rusty garden containers, or to add a little whimsy to the garden. Anything rusty and crusty seems to find it’s way in my car when I go junking.
This old sifter would be the perfect container for some little succulents. An old rusty tin, and little cans could be filled with herbs or flowers.
After looking around in my storage building, I settled on an old bucket, a mailbox, and a rusty file cabinet drawer that I found in the woods. The rusty containers were perfect to plant some fall zinnias in a pretty orange color. The orange really stood out against the brown rust.
If you are a fan of flea market gardening like I am, then rusty garden containers are a must in your garden. After all, they don’t cost much and you don’t to worry about them rusting!
