Using old washtubs on shepherd’s rods as planters

I‘ve seen several pictures using old washtubs hanging on shepherd’s rods as flower planters. When I tried this last year, the weight of the washtub with the flowers in it caused the shepherd’s rod to bow forward and pull out of the ground. How can I prevent that from happening as I love the look and want to do it again this year.
