this looks lovely Spritz..'.spring is in the air la-la-la..la-la!' ooops better not say that i might just jinks it lol i have an old chimney that i found behind the shed when we moved in it is currently at the back of the greenhouse, storing my bamboo canes, it is much thinner and taller, i was wondering about planting it up with something, but bit worried as to weather or not it would fall over, also has no bottom (obvioulsy) how did you get around this?

Easily - none of mine have bottoms. I found plant pots just the right size so that the rim fits the edge of the chimney, then I plant up the pot and pop it into the chimney. I am even organised enough to have two pots per chimney, so that one can be planted up ready to swap them at the end of the season!

My taller chimney is in the corner of the porch behind the small one so that it can't fall over.

i did'nt think of that! thing is mine is much less wide would'nt hold a very big pot, so would proberly dry out, was thinking of trying something really simple, maybe Ivy?

I have a plant pot that fits into the top of mine Spritz , I had to move the chimney pot last year and there was an ants nest under it full of eggs .
Yours looks very nice !

mmmm that's a good idea, would proberly take a bit of drout too, maybe a combo of the two, ivy with grass could look quite good...i might just put that on the mission list...it's getting rather long...

A mission list sounds more serious than a wish-list! I think my plan for the 'big space' is one of those, now. I shall be dashing from GC to GC in the spring, seeking out pots of the right plants! To boldly go where no woman has been before! (well, I have, really, it just sounded good) lol.
