My Crazy Stacked Pots Planter....
This is what I stopped at Lowe's for this weekend... the supplies to make my Crazy Stacked Pots Planer.
1 large Terracotta Pot
3 smaller Terracotta Pots.... you can use more, I made mine with 4
1 4 ft section of rebar
very easy to set up. lightly hammer rebar into ground where you want your planter to be, set large pot over the rebar through the bottom hole, fill with soil to top, slide smaller pot down the rebar though bottom hole and set it at a angle, fill with dirt, set second pot over the rebar, sitting on the rim of the first pot and fill with dirt, continue with your other pot or pots. You want to make sure that the rebar is hidden in the last pot, use your hammer to put it further in the ground before placing the last pot. when all the pots are in the position that you like just add your plants, water and watch them grow.. People wonder how you got the planters to stack in that crazy pattern... One lady in my neighborhood thought that I glued them... Nope the trick is the rebar... Have fun. And if you happen to break a pot... lay it on a mound of dirt like it just fell over and broke... fill it with soil and plant inside the planter and down the mound of dirt the pot is laying on... sorry no picture of that display....
