Wheelbarrow Rockery

Our wheelbarrow is battered, rusty and beyond repair so we have recycled it and bought a plastic one as a replacement.  

We have re-used it by drilling drainage holes in the bottom, mixing 50% John Innes no 2 with 50% horticultural grit filling it and then planting a selection of our favourite alpines into it.  We have then topped it off with some larger stones for interest and the remaining grit.  

We think it looks great and we can wheel it around to change its planting position.
