Why not use old tyres to display your flowers instead of the ‘normal’ and traditional planters. They hold soil really well and they are easy to move around. It’s a great way to spruce up your garden on a budget.

We tend to change our car tyres every 40,000 miles. Over the lifetime of your car, that's a lot of tyres!
