I found this idea on Pinterest and decided that I wanted to try it. Tires are easy to get. We have places here that take in old tires because they are hard to get rid of. My husband went to one of these places and got me 6 tires for free. These are really kind of large. I painted each of them using spray paint for plastic. I actually used a couple of different brands because they didn't carry all of the colors that I wanted. The yellow, orange and red took more than one can to cover it all. The purple also took more than one and the 2nd can was a different purple. I didn't put dirt in the green tire. It took 2 forty lb bags of potting soil to fill each tire. I put those plastic floor protectors in each one so that the dirt would stay in each tire. The top flower is a zinnia. I intend to eventually change it to a perrenial plant like the others. The plants in the yellow, orange, purple and blue are bedding perrenials and will return each season. For me, that's great. No real care and replanting needed.
