Annie's Galvanized Tipsy Pots

Galvanized tubs containers, combined with 'tipsy pots' is a genius idea and two of our favorite things at Flea Market Gardening!
Annie Steen has 'upped the ante' with her galvanized 'tipsy pots' and has added water flowing from the middle tub pouring into a little stream that flows into her pond.
Galvanized tubs and buckets needed and one other thing ....a metal conduit pipe
Buckets and tubs are strung on the conduit and screwed tight
Add a pump and flowers!

    I looked on the blog and it’s not anymore Informative than on here. As JP said, Van you show us how or is there a video of how to screw the pots to the pipe. I don’t understand that part.

    Well if they had of given directions YES I would have but can't quite figure out how? Did they run plastic/rubber tubing through the conduet?

    This is absolutely beautiful. I have had the idea of making a similar project but instead of using water, I want to use large crystal beads (from the dollar store) hanging from the spout of a galvanized watering can. Not as grand as yours but still just an idea.

    If this b.s. set of non-instruction is allowed, then it will only increase .. we aren't here to only get ideas of what can be done. This is supposed to be an informative instructional site as well.
