New Kind of Shade Garden Rolls Out

February 16, 2011 by

Roll out a tiny shaded garden with the Flower Power umbrella stand and planter.

It’s got wheels for easy portability: move it as the sun changes position to keep yourself shaded.

Or if you prefer, use it empty as an ice chest.

    Functional and fun for partial sun/shade plants!

    Just make sure there is drainage material inside if there are no drainage holes.

    Now I have to have two one for the Flowers and one for the ice : ) Annie

    This is great – umbrella stands are unwieldy and ugly – this is so much better!

  • Victoria

    This is a great idea. Goodbye ugly bases, hello fun and bright flowers and grasses!

    Odd. Not a single photo shows any plants in shade. Even the bottles in ice are not shaded. The first photo shows the planters situated in rocks… were they actually “rolled” into place? Doubtful.

    One would think that for promo purposes, the photos might have been selected a bit more wisely.

    Nice use of a shade plant.

  • mary faught,

    Where can you buy these planters and how much are they?
    I live in canada but I do shop in the united states.

    Mary, some of them have links to where you can purchase them.
