Hi all, I was looking for the circular plant stand holder on the net, (not having much luck) but I came across this and thought I wouls share with you all. I think it is a clever way of recycling and also saving on space. :)

NEAT ! one to remember for next year. :)

PS
Didn`t wait till next year, a length of box section steel is now screwed to my greenhouse staging above tomato height. Should take a dozen cartons with pots, ideal to keep the squashes out of the way. :)

Top Tip!

Haven't made a stand but did do all my runners in cut down milk carton pots, i find them easier than paper pots and they're just as cheap :lol:

Have to start looking for offcuts to make a stand now :)

Fantastic! Am making one. Brilliant find, would never have thought of something so elegant and easy. Great way to maximise water use & liquid feed as well if you let one drip onto the other.

I disagree - it's really nicely made with lots of little features.  If I made one it wouldn't be half as nice!

I thought i would give this one a bump so people can start collecting the milk cartons.

I rigged up a single batten version in the greenhouse last year and it worked well. :)
