Clear a spot for the tower, then drive a long piece of 1/2″ rebar into the soil at least two feet so that it will support the pots. It’s a good idea to surrounded the rod with newspaper to help prevent weeds from coming up through the mulch.

Then place a round clay pot at the base, threading the re-rod through the drainage hole. Fill the pot full of soil so that the next pot has something to sit on. Compress the soil down and water it in to firm it up.

Then we placed a 12″ round clay pot at the base, threading the re-rod through the drainage hole. You must fill the pot full of soil at this point so that the next pot has something to sit on. Press the soil down and water it in to firm it up

Pictured here is a 12″ pot with 10″ pots for the remainder of the tower. You can also use different size pots in ascending order for a tapered look. Thread the second pot through it’s drainage hole and tilt it to one side so that the base is resting on the soil.

Note: you may need to adjust the length of the re-rod. Some pots are taller than others even though the diameter is the same.
