Here Im featuring the yard art and exterior projects. This time I decided to feature unique potting ideas and next time Id like to show everyone's gardens, so PM me if you have some pictures.

rosella uses the shelves that hold greeting cards to plant her seedlings on the side of her house:

It is a little sideways, but this is a really great idea froom girlinsoop for saving valuable porch space and it is harder for the dogs and cats to get to:

Spyderbaby thought of a good way to grow her strawberries a few stories off of the ground

Ok, so these arent planters but I dont care! kisnkate has these halarious back yard babes in her aunts back yard. This makes me want to steal a manequin from the JC Pennys underoo section

What good ideas, especially for the seedlings.

I would like to grow some strawberries; at a certain point would one have to transfer the entire plant when/if it outgrows the tin can?

I have only ever grown strawberries in hanging pots, and they have never grown that big that I have needed to move them  into bigger pots.
But I guess like most plants, if your plants getting too big for your pot you can carefully trim the roots and trim the folige, and plant back in the same pot this should keep your plant healthy and more attractive to look at too.
I hope this helps.  Smiley

I like the idea for the strawberry planter also, but I believe I would paint them white to reflect the sun's rays which would help conserve water in the long run. Great ideas!

Inspiration without application is moot.

I found a picture on Pinterest where someone had salvaged guttering and fastened it to the side of their house to plant their garden in.
They had tons of stuff growing in it, lettuce, onions, etc.  Looked fantastic, kept the rabbits from stealing their produce.  I am thinking
about doing it on the side of my house but it is a rental.  I will have to put some posts in the ground and mount the guttering to that if
I can figure it all out.  The back of my house faces south so it should be great.  Would probably work great for strawberries too. 
You folks have quite the creative minds.  I love this site.
