Hi to everyone. Glad to have found you. I've been enjoying reading through all the threads and I see some great stuff here. I've gotten several good ideas from you all but I'm looking for something specific I only saw a hint of. One of you, Charlie _ (?) I think, mentioned something about flower pot holders he's seen somewhere. I'd like to find some plans for them if anyone else has any information - the more the better.
Looking forward to spending some time with you and sharing information and ideas. It's a goooood hobby!

yes you can learn lots of things here. I hope you enjoy the Forum and all the great members. we all have fun here . Enjoy
I think now is a good time to start making flower pot holders and have them ready for spring time. then you can plant and have a good growing season next year. I hope you find all that you are looking for.
one idea is my Grandmother used to have a big cast iron pot half berried in the yard with flowers in it.
also you could make a tubing frame with a big pot hanging from chains with the flowers in it. . kinda like a tubing frame that hold up a sign.
also you could get some 1/2" rod and bend them in a curved shape with little hooks on the end.then weld them to the top of a pole all around the top and have lots of flower pots hanging at diffrent heights with all kinds of flowers in the pots. so you would have then in a circle all around the pole.
I hope all this helps, sorry that I do not have any pictures. my Grandmother has passed and I dont have any pics. just telling you all this from mimory.

Boy that was a while back when Charlie and the group talked about Shepherd Hooks. Get yourself a 49 buck HF bender and some 1/2" burned circles from your local welding company, or i have sets of them for sale.
