I thought that if I turned it on end & hung it so that the deeper end was on the bottom I would be able to plant something different in it. So I drilled a hole on the back so I would be able to hang it on my Potting Shed. I then placed a piece of landscaping fabric in the bottom so that potting soil wouldn't fall out of the spout opening. I planted Ivy in the bedpan, thinking that would look interesting spilling out over the bottom of it. It's a unique planter & I think every garden can use a little bit of humor in it!
