Great for small space beside a porch or patio or walk way.
6 foot rebar pole with 1 foot hammered in the ground.
Thread pots of different sizes.
I've had mine about 20 years.
I grow just herbs some years, flowers.I saw my rod showing on the top pot after I took this picture. I'm still working on mine.my chives in the top pot have been coming back now for about 5 years.
In winter, I remove the pots so they won't crack.

Connie those are so cute! I went out this evening after our walk around the block and cut some daffodils to bring some sunshine inside. The wind has really given them what for so I thought it was time to enjoy them inside for a bit.

Connie, how do you keep the top pot up off the next one? The others look like they are sitting on top of the one below. Also, do you plant them first and then put them on there or plant after they are on the rebar?

Denise, each pot rests on the rim of the one below them. Slide it down, adjust it to sit on either side.
I plant them after I stack them on the rebar.hope this helps!

Connie, that is such a neat idea. I love them. I think that would be a fun way to grow herbs.

Connie, I had flower pots like that a few years ago, but they don't exist any longer. I grew mostly petunias in mine.
