Stack-a-pots in the garden

We’ve all seen tipsy pots,…pots tipped this way and that on a pole. But Emily Louise Campanell started a trend to stack pots straight up on top of each other for an address sign in her front entry way. See this and 7 more ideas!

Nell Stelzer's daughter, Emily Campanell, made the first one and that started the trend.

The pots are filled with soil, pressed firmly down and filled in with flowers. Accents can be added to the top pot. Emily says, ” I need to add a pot at the top or something else…I’m going to get a pot within the next few days to paint and place up there..

Gather up pots, soil mix, a sturdy metal stake and flowers. Thread the pole thru the pots as you stack them, filling each one with soil.

Mary Everett says, “Here’s my Jeannie Merritt inspired broken pot garden. I broke this pot a few weeks ago but I wasn’t upset because I had seen Jeannie’s wonderful fairy garden and I knew immediately what I would do with the pieces,…stack them into a miniature garden! Used a packet of tiny insect figures from my craft stash…look real close. Thank you Jeanie for sharing this unique idea.

Update:

By the end of summer, Emily’s pots are overflowing. She says, ” This was after it had filled out quite nicely. The petunias really took off!”

In September
