Pot Stackers

I created a pot stacker for the garden, and really liked how it turned out, so will be making some more.
I hammered a metal rod into the ground and then started stacking the pots, 2 of each size, rim to rim.

I have always wanted to do something similar with rocks. Drill a hole in them and stack them with rebar. I also love Lindasewandsew's pics of one lady's succulent garden where she stacked clay pots on rebar and planted succulents in each of them. I think she used small lengths of hose to separate the pots. I suppose these are just a different form of the glass totems! Your pots will look very neat once they are weathered and a little mossy.

I like the one that used some pipe to separate the pots. Thanks Luna. And I think rocks would be wonderful for stacking if they could be drilled.

I love the stacker it is so cute. And I love clay pots. But they don't do well in the cold weather. Has anyone got a treatnent method to protect them from moisture in the winter?

Thank you for sharing.

I take all my clay pots in for winter storage, because as you say they don't survive the freeze/thaw cycles of winter here in Ontario, Canada
