Project

Tiered Garden

Materials

  • 3 terra-cotta pots of descending size
  • Potting mix
  • 3 pieces of crockery
  • Plants

Steps

  1. Step 1

    1. Select 3 terra-cotta pots of descending size (e.g., 19-, 11-, and 6-inch-high pots) with drainage holes. Use pots of either the same style or of different styles. Choose a location for your garden. Once your pots are filled, the tiered garden might be too heavy to move.

  2. Step 2

    2. Place a piece of crockery over the drainage hole in the largest, or bottom, pot. Fill the bottom pot evenly with potting mix nearly to the rim.

  3. Step 3

    3. Center and nestle the second pot onto the first.

  4. Step 4

    4. Put a piece of crock over the drainage hole in the mid-size, or second, pot. Fill with soil.

  5. Step 5

    5. Place plants in bottom and second tier.

  6. Step 6

    6. Put a piece of crockery in the bottom of the third, or top, pot. Fill top pot with soil and center it on the second tier.

  7. Step 7

    7. Place plants in the top tier.
