The worlds of home gardeners and antique aficionados often overlap, with a good number of folks counting both as their favorite past time. While the two hobbies are often enjoyed by the same people, it’s not as often that they directly intersect. We would love to change that! We’ve gathered a sampling of images from around the web that exhibit innovative, fresh and fun gardening ideas involving antiques in some fashion. The relationship between gardening and antiques can be expressed in an abundance of ways, and the ideas shared here prove it.
Whether simply adding antique objects to an existing garden, or integrating the garden itself into an antique, there are no wrong ways to go about combining these complementary passions. We especially love the first idea, pictured above, from Simple Nature Decor. This project involved re purposing an old bicycle into a bespoke container garden itself, utilizing only a couple rustic wood baskets and some elbow grease. We hope you find some of these ideas intriguing and inspiring, as we have.
