With almost 200 orchids and lots of other plants, I am always running out of room and looking for creative ways to hang more plants.

Love the idea of the pipe with the shepard's hooks! Thumbs up

My Mom and I used a length of old dog chain between trees and hung the pot hooks into the links to add extra space.

I would really like to find an old swing set, fix it so vines could climb the legs and use it as an arbor with plants hanging from the top bar.... or maybe bird feeders....
I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

Thank you Kim! Dog chain is a great idea too! I think it's wonderful when we can re-purpose things instead of throwing them away!

I really love the swing set idea. There isn't much chance for finding an old one here in this over 55 community Thumbs down
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.
