What happened to the old bath tub?
Here are some pictures of the cast iron bath tub that I refinished last year.
I decided against filling it with soil again, because I found it does not want to drain very well. The dirt plugs the drain and then the plants drown, making the soil become very ran-sit and stale so nothing will grow anymore.
I found some big flower pots, Some had drain holes, and in the ones that did not have drain holes, I drilled several holes in the bottom. The bottom of the bathtub I lined with broken brick so the pots would not be standing in water if it rained to much.
Getting the flowers
Then I went to our local green house and bought some plant, here is what it looked like after I just planted them. I just hope they will grow and bloom and look really pretty for the wedding next month!
In front of the bath tub I added some flowers as well. I mostly choose Impatiens and Petunias in pinks and purples.
What do you think?
