Does anyone know of any solid Free Standing Hanging Basket Hangers?

When I was younger we used to use a spring loaded floor to ceiling pole with
hangers attached that you spaced/placed evenly.

Just thought I'd ask if anyone know of any Free Standing Hanging Basket
Hanger? And what their experience was with them?

Welcome!
Afraid I have no personal experience but I remembered seeing this bracket that could be attached to a lamp post.

This one is pretty expensive but I bet you could adapt the idea using regular brackets on some type of support..

That one has some very bad reviews. Many years ago I had one that was like that, and super sturdy, but this one looks pretty flimsy.

Hi Cheryl & Karen,

That looks exactly like the ones we used to have. Thanks for the info...
I will look into it a bit more to see if they are sturdy. But Thanks again.
Hadn't seen them in ages, didn't know they still made them.

Well there's always something like this:

Or maybe they made them better "back when"?

IDK how this one keeps from falling over?

Good luck!

HI Cheryl,

Wow, you have really found some plant hangers....

I'd been thinking about the last one. It has good
reviews on Amazon. Folks even say they use them
indoors, and they are rather sturdy.

Still checking out the pole one you posted previously.
We used the one we had all the time. It worked great.
And didn't take up any space...

Thanks so much for your posts.... Awful nice... Thank You!

The spring pole one says it is "currently unavailable" Donna. Be a little bit careful if you buy the ones that are free-standing as they tend to blow over if used outside. They could also be knocked over if used indoors. Once you put plants on them, they are very top-heavy.

I have a couple and had to put sand bags on the legs, then tie them up to the top of my pool cage so they wouldn't blow over and throw my orchids into the pool.
