Time to start gardening! My tilted pot tower!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have been inspired by Miracle-Gro to get out into the garden and have some fun! For inspirational projects to do or spark your creativity and start your own story visit The Gro Project on Facebook. If you need some motivation check out this video: 

I had pinned this project quite some time ago and finally got around to doing it with the help of my kids and Husband!

What you need:

  • 2 - 8 inch clay pots
  • 4 - 6 inch clay pots
  • 1 - 5 foot metal rebar stake 
  • Moisture Control Potting Mix
  • Any flowers you desire
  • (optional) paint and sealer

Put it together:

You may choose to paint your pots and seal them or leave them natural. If you paint them make  sure they are sealed for use outdoors. Make sure they are dry.

Pound the rebar stake into the ground about 1 foot deep. 

Starting with an 8 inch pot, thread the rebar through the drainage hole in the pot until it sits on the ground. Fill with Potting Mix and your new flowers (Lobelia works great in our area and it looks like water is flowing over the sides of the pots)

The 4 pots will be the 6 inch pots. Thread through the drainage hole and when the pot reach the one below, use the soil to settle it in place staggered laft to right (or front to back). Fill pots with soil and flowers as you go making sure to leave room for the pot that will be on top of it.

The last pot on the top will be the other 8 inch pot. Fill it with more soil and flowers OR top it with a saucer for a bird bath! You may need to poun the rebar down some to make sure it is hidden beneath the soil. 

The possiblilities are great with this one, get creative and show me what you come up with!
