Southampton In Bloom Competition

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

This year the SOuthampton in Bloom competition is asking for clever ideas to display flowers in recycled containers. I was wondering if you lovely people have any bright ideas we could steal!! We have a very small budget so it needs to be very inexpensive!!

 

Thanks to anyone for any help

Tyres - line them with weed resistant stuff, then plant. If you go to a tyre place they should have some to give away, then they don't have to pay to get rid of them.

Can't think of anything else at the mo!

Thanks for the replies.

 

We want to have a container for each letter of the alphabet - so need something that is not too small as it wont have enough of an impact, but nothing too big as it will take it too much room!!

OK - is someone clever enough to create a list that we can all add to :( (sorry -i'm not :o ) - rather than having to track back through individual posts. Then we may be able to help Punto and give each other ideas for other occassions.

 

Just a thought xD

Good idea BrendaS - here's a list that we can just keep adding to:-

 

A =

B = Baths,

C =

D = Drawers (as in chest of ..., not underwear!)

E =

F =

G =

H = Handbags,

I =

J = Jugs,

K =

L =

M = Milk cartons,

N =

O =

P =

Q =

R =

S = Sinks, saucepans, shoes,

T = Tyres, Teapots, Toyboxes

U = Umbrellas,

V =

W = Wellington boots, wheelbarrow, watering can

X =

Z = Zimmer frame,

A = Aquarium

O = ornament? Orange juice carton

P = potty, pram

Q =

R =

V = vase,

You know the ones your granny used to wear? (well, my headmistress did) You could tie the legs and plant in both legs.
