Tipsy pots (or topsy-turvy towers as some call them) came on the gardening scene years ago but I still never get tired of them. I’ve gathered a few favourite photos with more to come as I find them.
If you want to know the not-so-secret secret to making them, see How to make tipsy pots.
Tipsy Pot Mania
You can use any type of containers for tipsy pots. I’m really fond of traditional, weathered clay pots, but the sky is the limit. And there’s no reason why you can’t use a variety of containers including old kitchen pots and coffee percolators, galvanized pots and tubs, and ceramics. You just need to be able to drill a hole in them to insert the support rod.
Also, while most are made with a rod inserted in the ground, you can also hang up the entire thing by bending the bottom of the rod under the last pot and forming a hook at the top.
These photos are from my own garden plus some gardens I have visited on tours.
And from way back when, here’s some from garden many years ago
Now go get your turvy on! If you want to see more, check out my Pinterest Tipsy Pots Board here.
