Discarded Strawberry Pot Adds Charm

Recycled pot added to the Labyrinth Garden.

"Good side" of the recycled pot.

These types of pots which I’ve heard called “Strawberry Pots” are so wonderful because they have multiple openings for plants.  The result is a pot surrounded by greenery even when the plants are small. 
I frequently find pots set out for the trash collector because they have a few blemishes.   This strawberry pot was discarded by a neighbor today  and is now permanently a part of the Labyrinth Garden. 
It really was not in bad shape.  See the blemished side below.  I’ll just turn that side to the tree!

The solution to blemishes is not to throw away the pot, but just turn the blemish to the wall. or install a bushy plant that mostly covers up the pot. I haven’t yet decided what I want to plant in it.
