Ok- it's not the spring you were expecting but it is a spring!!!!!
This is an old rusy inner- spring from a sofa I think.
I have saved and moved it for the past 3 or so years. I knew it had life still in it- and last week I finally got to see it SPRING to life!!!!
Very simple project- line the cone shaped springs with moss,pinestraw,newspaper or hay and fill each with potting soil.
Then just plant a fresh new BEDDING plant and water well!!! It's DONE!!!!You do need to water this more often as it dries out fairly fast.
