We'll be adding more technical data on the supports on the website. And we are ready for orders. We are still researching the shipping options but we are ready to ship. Also we can delivery in the Lawrence and Topeka, Kansas area.
We've had some interest in a new Plantapillar product: the Bucket Support. Outdoors it can be used to stabilize and support a standard plastic bucket and quickly secure it to the ground. We are finding that it has many uses. It can be used to keep an animal's feed bucket from overturing or to hold a salt and gravel mix near the steps or driveway to the house during a snowy and windy winter. For those that like to feed the deer this bucket holder lifts the bucket and corn out of the snow. In the shop it can support a service bucket at counter top level to reduce bending. The design is also used on the vine trellis to allow slow watering of your vine plants below.
Use the bucket support with the wide base (far left above) for maximum stability or cleaner, tapered support (above far right) . Using different length bucket supports you can have the bucket anchored and resting nearly on the ground or have it as high as a counter top within easy reach.
Our inventories are growing and we now have a wide selection of photos of this years garden supports. All the Product galleries now have photos (except Tree Guard which is receiving final design updates). Below is a photo of cages ready of delivery.
The Plantapillar garden supports in the beginning. Loaded and ready for delivery.
