Pot plants are the butter of the gardening world, they go with everything.

They can add pops of colour to your garden while also jazzing up the interior of your home, but now it’s time to get creative because your run-of-the-mill pot plant holders are just so last season. Gardening can be pricey at times but when it comes to pot plants thinking outside the box doesn’t have to be expensive, there are plenty of unused items laying about your house that are just begging for a make-over and to nurture a plant.

Here are some weird and wonderful pot plant ideas that are sure to get your creative juices flowing.


A bike that’s past its used by date is just calling out to house some colourful plants. A bike basket can be used to grow flowers while the seat and handles also make cosy places for plants to nest. A bike pot plant is sure to be a show stopper in any garden and a talking point for the neighbors.


If you’ve given your car an overhaul there is no need to throw away the used tyres. You could always make the kids an old-fashioned tyre swing, but I think we can all agree the garden needs them more. Tyres are solid, durable against the elements and once packed with soil make perfect plant holders. Give them a little extra pizazz by painting them bright colours and stacking a few together to make a feature for your garden.


They say a change is as good as a holiday, so why not change up your garden and add a suitcase to the mix? Take a few suitcases whose traveling days have come to an end and give them a new lease on life by growing some plants inside. This look is sure to add a quirky vintage twist to your house or garden.


These boots were made for walking……or in this case housing some flowering plants. Take a sturdy boot and fill it with soil, plant some seeds and wait for your plant to take its first step and sprout.


Even plants need to take a load off and take a seat while out and about in the garden. Take a chair (a wooden one as pictured above in our photo gallery works best) , remove the seat and place a pot plant inside. Now you have pot plant holder with a little extra lift.


Bag yourself a stylish pot plant holder by using some arm candy to brighten up your garden. Handbags make excellent pot plant holders and as an added benefit they are easily transportable. Meaning you can easily change their location around your house and garden to keep them looking fresh.
