I don't know what it's like where you live, but every time the stores come out with something new for the garden, I start seeing the item popping up all over town. Soon enough, that unique new ornament is commonplace and a bit trite.
I can honestly say that I've never seen a "tipsy" flower pot tower
, though; it looks like something I want to try in my garden
. To put it together, you'll need:
The tower looks simple enough to assemble.
- A tall, sturdy metal rod. (The instructions call for a 66" rod.)
- One 12" round clay pot.
- Four 10" clay pots.
- Potting soil.
Drive the rod into the ground, and thread the 12" pot onto the rod. Fill with soil. Then thread the 10"pots on, balancing each pot sturdily on the pot below. All that's left to do is to fill it with your favorite flowers
