Would this work? cement + plastic
I have a metal bottle tree frame , the base is hardly big enough to anchor it really good in the ground. The wind just blows it over. My thought was finding either a 5 gallon pail , or a plastic pot - pouring cement in it and standing the metal frame in it so it hardens standing straight up. That way it'll be weighted down & I can have it on my deck,too . I'm wondering if the plastic will hold up with cement in it . Does cement have caustic things in it that'll crack the pot ? I hate to do it & ruin it right away. Any ideas ?
