Spring Garden Tips
Second Life For Furniture

Don’t throw away worn out or broken garden furniture. Turn it into garden art or a planter. Many gardeners are painting old chairs, tables, and bikes and setting them in the garden for display. Set a pot of plants in the bike basket, on the chair seat or atop the table to create an interesting planter.
