I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a flower pot' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'any scrap available may be used' is the wordplay.
'any scrap' can be anagrammed to 'SPRAY CAN'.
However, I am unsure how the anagram is indicated.

'for' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for spray can that I've seen before include "Aerosol" , "put on coat?" , "one to provide cover with jets" , "Graffiti artist's equipment" .)
