You can use a cheap plastic funnel and a plastic tomato stake to make a space-saving piece of garden art that also functions as a different type of vertical garden.

I love it! Going to have to try this one. I'm thinking lobelia, maybe?

I used Sempervivums and Sedums because they look good in the winter too and change colors with the seasons. I like the idea of using something else in them too. I might try Delosperma Wheels of Wonder next Spring!

I'm going to experiment next Spring. I'm back in school until December. Bummer. LOL.
