Ah, donutsmrs, that reminds me of when my children were small and the washing for rugby kit and PE days was getting difficult to dry in time in a wet year, so my husband bought me a drier. When it was no longer usefull I put the large aluminium drum out on the drive and filled it with bluebells for early nectar for the bees and sedum spectabile for the butterflies in the autumn. It is still there 35 years later , still doing its job with those two kinds of plant. It gets worm tea for food occasionally and the odd weed pulled out.but it has been the best container ever.
