Toilet bowls as decoration, terrible topiary and dancing chickens: Hilarious gardening fails revealed

Keen gardeners with a respect for nature and a passion for plants, look away now. 

A collection of excruciating horticultural fails have been gathered by one cheeky Instagram account, known simply as S*** Gardens.

The account welcomes submissions, with most of the gardens featured so far located in Australia.

S*** Gardens has secured a publishing deal, with a coffee table book due for release next year.  Here, Mail Online rounds up the best of the worst…
