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 have lots of Semps and succulents of various types. I must try this idea. It will be nice for other things as well to add pops of elevated color around the gardens.

Thanks for all the nice comments! When I have time, I am going to make more of these. They are really good space savers!

I can already picture several of them at varying heights in my garden. And without a lot of expense.
