How to keep a shepherds hook from leaning over with the hanging plant on it!!
Mimi.....Make sure it is in good solid area. You may need to put some rock around it it soft ground.
When I have a shepherd hook that starts leaning over from the weight of the plant, I put in the green garden stakes that you can attach fencing to and put the upright into the U so that it means on the sturdy stake and keeps it upright. I have two or three that do tend to lean when I hang a flower on them, I don't think the parts of the shepherd hooks that you sink in the ground are enough for much more than small hanging pots. I even have a double one that with the same size pots on it, still likes to lean to the right, but the stake is holding it up real well.
i put mine in the ground so they look like backward slash. \
then when you hang the pot, it will straighten up.
