CAN METAL BUCKETS BE USED AS FLOWER POTS?

Metal buckets can be transformed into rustic flower pots. Tank gardens are not limited to traditional flower pots or stalls.

Zinc has the distinction of being malleable (it is ductile from 100 ° C) and can easily adapt to the shape of the elements it covers. Used in the form of sheets or thin plates, it can be easily worked and cut to make all kinds of objects. The only drawback of zinc is that it is cold breakable. The parry was found using galvanized steel. Steel, the star material of the industrial revolution of the 19th century, is very resistant but it is a compound of iron and carbon (0.1 to 20% carbon in the alloy, beyond it is cast iron ) so it is likely to rust.
