Tires raise soil above ground, which means it warms faster. This gives northern climates an earlier start to a flower or vegetable gardening than traditional soil planting. By planting seeds early in a stack of tires and then draping plastic over it, you can create a mini “greenhouse” and get an early start on your garden.

That is a good idea making rubber tires as your plant edges. It looks so beautiful in the garden there is no problem of cracking of pot.

Another nifty planter can also made for those who have small spaces by stacking four tires of different sizes into a sort of pyramid. First you can have a tractor tire and above it use truck tire and above that use small auto tire and then ATV tire. Fill it with soil with this you can created a multi-layered vertical garden. With some more imagination you can have plants cascading down the sides of this planter.

I think that is a brilliant idea stacking tyres and have a vertical type garden, my son grows potatos by adding tyres to give height and increase the potato size as potatos need soil added after the initial growth phase as the small potatos will become exposed to the sunlight, so by adding another tyre and soil on top large potatos will form.He also grows sweet potatos the same way.
