"I planted strawberries and peppers in mine. Keeping it well watered my plants are thriving. I'll be buying another for next season and planting herbs in it." -Customer in Ohio
Expecting tremendous results
So far so good. Will see how plants perform at the bottom of the tower and how it cleans up and can be used for next season.
Flower tower has great potential
Anticipate beautiful flowers with this tower.
Beautiful display of flowers every year.
I have a perennial/annual planting business. I have 3 customers I have made these for plus one for myself. I like to use impatiens mostly because they will quickly spread out and fill in. As I plant I have my tray of impatiens, a bucket of water filled with sheet spaghnum moss, and a bucket of dirt. I initially fill the tube w/dirt and start planting from the bottom up. I squeeze each impatien into a long tube like shape and use my finger to push it in each hole. I immediately squeeze a piece of spaghnum moss into the same hole. The moss will hold in the dirt, allow you to see if the plant needs water if they dry out and aid the plant to set roots as it is now held in place. Through out the growing season (northern Illinos) I feed my "trees" every time I water. The growing season is so short I just want a lot of blooms as these are annuals that will be thrown away at the end of summer. I like to use one color as I think it makes more of a statement, but some of my customers like a mixed or "striped" effect. Whichever these are always one of the showstoppers of people's garden.
I have 2 and am in the 2nd year of using them. To keep dirt from falling out while filling, I cut strips of cling wrap and circled each row of holes. Using a 1" dowel, I tamped down the dirt to about the middle of the lowest row. Remove the wrap from that row and inserted plants. I used impatiens in one and petunias tinthe other. You can manhandle the root easily to force plant into hole. Carefully add more dirt, tamp down, and then continue up for each row. This may sound complicated but is actually very simple and goes quickly. I live in an arid area and need to water them every 3rd day. Fill tube a couple times then sprinkle water on top to soak. I get compliments from everyone. Every plant is doing well and container is covered in blooms. They are gorgeous!
I will buy this product again
very nice excellent
Review on Flower Tower
We are happy with the way it turned out. Next year we will plant with varied colors making it like a spiral barber pole. Also we will devise a way to tamp down the dirt as we plant. Nice to have the watering hole on top.
not very sturdy
This is a fun presentation for flowers. The water tube really helps keep the moisture throughout. I purchased 3 of them. The holes don't keep the soil in the container and makes a mess when I water. I put mine on a plant saucer and it helps contain the mess. On the day of planting I noticed that the second row was squishing down and wouldn't stay straight up! So I have BUNGEE CORDs that keep it upright and and anchored to my porch.
Love, love, love my flower tower
I planted strawberries and peppers in mine. Keeping it well watered my plants are thriving. I'll be buying another for next season and planting herbs in it.
Clever but nonproductive
I was excited, took some time to figure out how to assemble it, but showed it to friends while waiting to plant. Isn't that interesting, isn't that clever, I wonder if it will work, were the common comments. I found it did not hold dirt well, that the plant holes were too round after planting (an egg shape might have done better) and dirt struggled to stay in the planting spots. The water ran through the watering system too fast. Only the plants at the bottom of the tower took root. It is not producing now. I am still deciding what to try in it again, and look forward, again, to watching it do it's thing. I am less positive than when I first planted it.
Extremely hard to assemble and very hard to plant but will
The soil keeps falling out even when packed in tight.
I bought for a Christmas present for my wife.
Clever idea, but the holes are too small
I intended on growing kitchen herbs in it. It said the holes were standard nursery plant size, but my smallest purchases were too big. I had one that fit in the hole, but the dirt just fell apart as it went in. It is true french tarragon (hard to find), so I forced two other herbs in opposite holes and filled enough dirt to cover that row. Since it's not totally full, I can see from the top how the water "spits out" and it's pretty neat. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't kill the 3 herbs I've planted in it and hoping I can find some nursery plants small enough to fill it with. It was a little difficult to assemble, and I doubt it will withstand Oklahoma winds, but it is fairly portable so can be moved to shelter. Given the choice, I would not purchase it again.
Its beautiful! This is my third one. I gave the second one as a gift and she lov es it also. Planting the right flowers in it is "key". I assembled it myself and thought it was pretty simple. In addition to the watering hole at the top, I also spray the entire outside of the tower thoroughly.
Half of the flowers I planted in this died. Uneven water distribution. The rest of the flowers thrived only because I didn't use the inside tube for watering. I watered all around the top until the water ran out the bottom. It doesn't look at all like the flowers blooming. Very sparse. Still trying to grow the rest. I would return it, but for $20, it's not worth spending close to $8.00 for return shipping.
We spent hours and many dollars assembling the big box store version of the flower tower. I wish I had found this earlier. I re-ordered. Watering system is clever. My only criticism is the durability of the cylinder. This tower is best anchored in a large pot. Well worth the price.
Have a large balcony patio in a highrise outside DC area. Wanted to spruce it up. Purchased the tower and put fake colorful flowers in it. Came out gorgeous and got raving reviews and comments from my neighbors that love the idea. There is no care and I look out my window to see a blooming flower tower in all kinds of weather. Easy to put together. Weighted it down with a few rocks and popped the fake flowers in the holes. You should try it.
Love the flower tower!!
This product was easy to put together with a great watering system. I grew one last year and it was stunning. All guests commented and wanted one. I just planted it again for this season.
Very easy to assemble. Instructions could have been more clean, but it went together fine. Like the watering system. Anxious to see the thing in full bloom. DB
A little tough to put together but well worth it. I had one on each side of my steps last year and it looked amazing. I just bought a couple more for a house warming gift
About to order another flower tower
Planted two weeks ago, flowering plants are doing great. Easy assembly if you can read and follow directions. Have been moving it indoors/outdoors due to unseasonably cold nights. Ordering one, or two or three more - thinking strawberries, veggies, or more flowers. Love the flower tower.
I did not like the design. Disappointed that it was not hard pvc plastic but instead a collapsible column. I was impressed with the internal watering setup but unable to get the tower assembled. I don't see how that could accomodate dirt, water, plants, etc.
If living in a windy area product needs to be secured to a post or placed in a sheltered area as it easily tips over & the flowers break
