Vertical gardening

Post  Larraine Winkler on 3/19/2015, 7:08 am

Has anyine used the Mr. Stacky pots? I have a traditional SFG but in a couple corners could put containers, but thought I might get more use out of these stacked pots. My only concern is whether the water drains properly to evenly water all levels. Thought I'd put strawberries in lower tier and herbs above.

I haven't, but that looks quite interesting...

If you decide to try it, please let us know how it does.

I bought some on eBay in 2013.  The purchase consisted of 12 stackable containers with 12 self water inserts, 4 drip pans, 4 hanging chains for around $60-80 with shipping.  I made 4 hanging units consisting of 3 containers each.

I have mixed reviews. I washed and put them away because I wanted to give them another try some day. Everything is on a drip system and the drip pan always filled up and overflowed. But, the cups were small and it was hard to put mulch around the plants. Need to tinker a bit more. Maybe this year I will try them again. Plus my Mel's Mix is so much more nutritious now.
