Gord: Tender planting is becoming more and more popular, and half of container planting is actually is the container. And we are here with Sheena Adams, and she is going to show us some of this new funky, why I should not say new, but funky innovative containers that you have used to make a great show. Hi, Sheena.
Sheena: Hi! Yes, well this is my collection of containers and am I do like to plant in different items and I find them at antiques stores or they are just containers that I have found in our basement or laying around. The things that we have used are broken, become unusable. So, we recycle them into containers.
Gord: They are so neat because you really we have got a nice one here. You really had put no limitations on anything you are willing to use.
Sheena: Yes. This one I found in the old shed. It was here when we bought the property. Unfortunately, it was rested out just a little bit in the bottom, so it will provides the perfect drainage.
Gord: Drainage, great.
Sheena: That is an old piece of just an enamel stove ware. It is black so I choose to plant it with foliage type plants to accent that.
Sheena: And I set it on top of this old black chair.
Gord: Here it is.
Sheena: And lace it up a bit, so we can see it a little closer.
Sheena: Yeah, I love that one. (both are laughing)
Gord: I would not never thought of about this one.
Sheena: Yes. Well, I have a few of these because we use the red wagons at the garden center and after several years, six or seven, they get flat tires. So, we have a couple for spares but I thought why not plant up with you.
Sheena: Give people some ideas.
Gord: That is great.
Sheena: So, this one we planted with the sedums and sedums like plants that are drought tolerant.
Sheena: Just to sort of accent the wagon. It is easy to pull around and move.
Gord: Yeah, yeah.
Sheena: Yeah, it is great. Use a little rock to accent it
Sheena: But again, we have to put a holes in the bottom.
Sheena: Down near here so that it will drain. It would not seat to watch.
Sheena: But we really enjoying this one.
Gord: I like this in it. Yeah, I know you probably did not take off the front wheels but you know, that slope actually lets you enjoy the plants even better.
Sheena: Yes. That is right. The front wheel just broke off. Years of kids jump in that.
Gord: Exact, and lunch kit. Now, that lunch kit doe not actually look that bad. I think it could be use at anytime.
Gord: But you have done a great job, right there. We are using it something different.
Sheena: Yeah, I found it in the basement of a that we bought and I thought we will put a few holes in it and use it as an home for the heucheras.
Gord: Get home for heucheras.
Sheena: Yeah, very small so you can move it around. Light weight. It is beautiful. So, that is sort of evergreen container that will enjoy year round.
