Daisy, that is gorgeous. I tried that one year, and my step ladder got blown over so many times, I gave up.

So my question is; do you fastened it in some way? or maybe you don't get the very brisk gusts of winds that I get.

I now have my step ladder fastened to my shed for decoration.

I do get a lot of wind and although I did have things fastened on, I should have had the heavy things on the bottom. I didn't have as many containers as you on it, it had more lighter garden "art". Next year I must give it another try. Thanks

Those look like Sundials... I tried growing them in a planter on my sunny balcony last summer, but they didn't seem to do very well. There weren't enough simultaneous blooms for my liking. I blamed it on the rainy weather at the time but I'm not convinced.
Any tips for growing those well?
