I came across this plan called a Greenhouse Space Saver and thought it was interesting.

What a great idea!! I don't have a greenhouse but something like that would work on my deck for a few plants. Thanks for the link Jay!

I find it interesting that she uses the tops of the containers rather than the bottoms for her planters, too. Looks to me like, by using her system, you could use both. The tops on the rack and the bottoms in a tray. Hmmmm...

There's only one handle to use on each container. The handle holds it onto the board. Ingenious idea!

That is really cool. I think I might make a similar version. I have thought about using a coffee cup holder and cups as a small herb garden.(one that holds cups upright of course) so there's another idea for you guys.

This is really neat. I can see it modified several ways depending on what you have around the place & where you want to put it.Gardeners are an ingenious bunch.

A good idea, thanks for the link. Do you think that is half gallon containers?

Near the bottom of the post she says she uses 4 pint and 6 pints containers. Which would be 1/2 and 3/4 gallons.
