Instant planting in a wine barrel

I bought a wine barrel (not really for wine, though) last week and let it lie around idlely because I haven't got enough potting mix for planting. But this morning I thought I could try making an "instant planting" in the barrel, using a few potted plants. This is how it turned out.

I got in there a pot of "grass" and ivy, a pot of rosemary and a pot of shrimp plant. Then I filled the empty spaces in-between the pots with plastic bags and covered on top with pine bark.

It looks natural enough, doesn't it?

Nice display and good use of plastic bags!

Thanks, Steph. We have a lot of plastic bags discarded from grocery shopping. Disaster if we cannot recycle them :-(

It has a touch of class. It's amazing that people can do several things from a used wine barrel. You should see the chandelier, table, meat smoker and many more.

Thank you for your comments, Used Wine Barraels.
