Neato planter

I just saw this on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater



It doesn't look like it should be too hard to build. My yard is tiny, so this would be great. I also wouldn't have to bend nearly as much.

Has anyone tried the vertical, round pvc/plastic planters? We ordered one, but haven't set it up yet.

Do you have a photo? I want to hear all about it once you are using it.

TL--You could use eaves' troughs...attach them to the side of your house by the patio door...

I'm not really allowed to attach something like that to the side of my house. The outside of the building belongs to the condo association.

But, I could build some sort of upright and attach eaves troughs to that. It would be even better with wheels, so I could make sure it got enough sunlight.

Cool planter!

Maybe repurpose a pallet on edge, with a wider base, and attach the eaves to it. Careful of windy days, it might blow over.
