We have an old wheelbarrow with a broken wheel. It was no good to anyone so we were thinking it needed to go to the tip. But Bruce had a bright idea to turn it into something beautiful…

So Bruce drilled some holes, me and my daughter did some shopping, and between us we made the wheelbarrow useful again 🙂

We’re pretty chuffed with how it turned out 🙂

It contains 9 plants… some of which I have photos of:

  • A Pink – Dianthus ‘Tickled Pink’
  • 2 Salvias – Salvia nemorosa ‘New Dimension Rose’ and Salvia x sylvestris ‘Blue Queen’
  • Jacob’s Ladder – Polemonium ‘Bressingham Purple’
  • Lemon Thyme – Thymus x citriodorus
  • 2 Lavenders – Lavandula angustifolia Munstead and Lavandula stoechas Papillon (French Lavender)
  • Lemon Balm – Melissa officinalis Variegata
  • Garlic – Allium satiyum (this one is specially for Bruce as he likes his garlic!)

It’s lovely to look at and smells lovely too 🙂 Enjoy some photos…
