    I use moss roses and petunias for this one.
    I will be making another tipsy pot for my front yard....I will have to find flowers that will do well in shade.

    That's quite a tall tipsy pot MGF. Once the growth really takes off it's beauty will become even more apparent ;) Thanks for posting it.

    Tipsy pots are wonderful aren't they? They save space in the garden and look so attractive. I'm looking forward to seeing everything flower in yours. :-D

    Great tipsy pots. Brazilizn Fireworks Maracas would do excellent in the shade if you can find them, they are perfect for that size pots. I started some from seed, but haven't seen them in the nurseries.

    This looks great. It's starting to look like a "must have" for all of us. Let's get tipsy-pots of course. 8)

    Seeing yours makes me want to get mine done. I have the pots but want to paint them to match the wicker furniture I am redoing so the next time I get out the paint the pots will be painted and then I can put it together.

    No glue required.
    I just used a piece of rebar and put the pots on. I used the hole that was in the bottom of the pot and slid them on the rebar after I hammered it in the ground.
    Thanks for all the great comments!!
