I have seen some head planters that look like very old statues. I am wondering if anyone knows where to find them for sale. Also would like to know if they are sturdy and would stay upright in windy conditions.

Are you referring to these? They are rather expensive, but lovely.

There are some on Amazon, but I agree not cheap.

I will take a look at both, I don't want to spend a lot if I get one. Thanks for your input.

You are welcome Betty. After pricing head planters made by others, I realized I would either have to inherit one, or make it myself... Whistling There are a number of other links out there. I googled hypertufa+ head planters and those were the first to come up that looked feasible for me to try. Big Grin
