Tipsy pot towers are a great way to add color and vertical interest to any deck, patio or garden while cleverly providing a garden's worth of plants in a sliver of space. They are well-suited to planting with cascades of blooms in sun or shade and are perfect for growing herbs in a sunny space close to the kitchen.
At their most basic they are simply a collection of pots slid over a supporting rod via their drainage holes, and then angled away from the rod when planted. The towers can be secured directly into the ground by the support rod or into a larger and heavier base pot.
