This sturdy 3 tiered planter makes a fabulous addition to your patio. Planted up with fuchsias, pelargoniums or your favourite summer bedding, it will form a cascading display of colourful blooms. Its lightweight frame makes it really easy to handle so you won’t find it difficult to put together.
Take the two thin poles out of the packaging. You will notice that one has a thinner screw end and this screws into the other thin pole to create the central support.
Screw the central support into the base of the planter. Now you’re ready to start assembling the baskets.
Thread the largest basket onto the support pole before adding one of the larger tubes. This tube will help to hold the baskets level once the planter is assembled.
Next, thread the medium sized basket onto the pole and add the second large tube.
Finally you can add the top planter and screw the whole thing together with the wing nut supplied. If your hand will fit, you can make this easier by lifting the liner in the basket so that you can see what you’re doing. Make sure that it is screwed together firmly to hold the baskets tightly in place.
Once it’s assembled, all you need to do is fill the planter with a good quality compost and plant it up with your favourite plants.
Plants and gardens have always been a big part of my life. I can remember helping my Dad to prick out seedlings, even before I could see over the top of the potting bench. As an adult, I trained at Writtle College where I received my degree, BSc. (Hons) Horticulture. After working in a specialist plantsman's nursery, and later, as a consulting arboriculturalist, I joined Thompson & Morgan in 2008. Initially looking after the grounds and coordinating the plant trials, I now support the web team offering horticultural advice online.
