I love recycling/upcycling ideas. This year is was use of logs as planters. I suspect the dominance of log-related merchandise is direct result of all the ice storm damaged trees!
Cute planter. Succulents and logs make a good combo. Use well-draining soilless media. Part of Kawayan (bamboo) Tropics display designed by Jacob’s Gardenscape.
Totally hollowed out log with succulents. Great design by Floral Dimensions.
A whole log makes sense for epiphytes like orchids! Design by McEwan Floral.
Vertical Wall Planters
Vertical gardening is super trendy right now. Found lots of ideas of how to expand your gardening square footage by going up!
Inserting planters into stone walls extends an old idea: planting in freestanding stonewalls.

But you don’t have to have to have a stone wall to have a vertical garden. GroNomics has developed a freestanding unit!
Picture Frame Planters
Picture frames have gone to whole new level! Create living art with real live plants.
From the tiny recessed planter, which you can easily attach to your fence or other vertical surface…
