They're cute Jo Ann. I've never used actual pot feet. Too cheap to buy them. I use screw-on caps from milk jugs as pot feet sometimes.

Thats a great idea. I will need to replace last years clay feet with stones or something .I left the feet on all pots and they broke apart. I dont know what made me do it. I am a potter and know better.

Karen- that's a neat idea! If you could grab a picture of that, I'd be delighted to add it to the tips!

Actually, Trish, I have no planted containers yet. After all, it's early April and I live in Ohio! We've been having nights in the 30s. But after I plant some, I'll get a picture.

Unually, you can't see milk cap pot feet. I just set several caps on the ground, depending on the size of the pot, and sit the container on top of the caps.

It sounds brilliant, and not something I would have thought of, so I figure it will make a great tip. Id do it myself for a pic, but I actually don't have milk jugs or lids Whistling

I love those little animal feet! Adorable!

Warning: They have to be brought in for the winter. Some of last years plain ones have cracked and shattered. I am beginning to think they will be a nuisence for me to deal with come fall.We dont have a lot of storage space in the garage.
