The first option display single pots on ground secured by stake pins:
I use these 6-inch garden stake pins in gardening tasks to hold up pots, pottery, and other plant support items in my garden, like tables, fencing, cages, and support plant rods.

This outdoor plant stand option is for free-standing outdoor small to medium size pots. These 6-inch Garden Stake Pins come in three different varieties; half-green, all-green or galvanized. Small to medium size plants that add to front yard or backyard settings that sit on the ground can be held in place using these six-inch outdoor gardening stake pins. The garden stake pins hold the pottery or other outdoor pots in place during low seconds-long wind periods. Plant pots also tend to tilt or fall when the moisture levels in the soil are low, and upward foliage causes the pot to tumble over. By staking the pins around the parameter of the pots, the pots should hold in place in a stationary matter, hence the pins become outdoor plant stands. If the pots have large amounts of foliage extending from them, add more pins on the parameter of the pots. Encircle more pins around the pots to create individual outdoor plant stands for each pot. For example, a pot of basil in a garden will stand up freely, stationary and in place, and it will not fall onto other plants in the garden, if staked with pins. Also, a fully blooming bouquetlike flowery potted plant with large top foliage will stand upright in a yard’s flower display and not spill or tumble over.
These pins are easy to install, therefore just push the pins into the soil half-way down around the parameters of the pots, tightening the sides of the pots. Tighten the tension around the pots by adding more pins. If pots are still sloping or leaning towards falling, add one or two metal garden stake rods with the pins to set the pots upright. There are three different varieties of pins to use on the exterior of the pots to set the pots stationary. These pins can be reused for several gardening seasons for staking pots into stationary positions.
The second option display 2-tier plant stands, stands secured by stake pins:
Two-Tier 2-3 feet plant stand options change the height of plants in comparison to in-ground garden planting levels. Set plants up at different height levels in an in-ground gardening environment in a greenhouse, or above the ground free standing plants on a patio. These type of plant stands add multiple height levels to the gardening setting; 6-inches from the ground, and 24-inches from the ground. A 3-tier stand, or table would be 36-inches from the ground. There are several plants that would fit in this setting by being displayed above the in-ground gardening. The plant stands can be placed in various places in a greenhouse or on a patio, if there is amble light reaching each of the plants.
Plants that you harvest the leaves for teas would strive in this type of greenhouse gardening setting. Plants like strawberry leaves, blueberry leaves (#commissionearned), and lemon grass, their leaves used as teas would be easier to harvest because the plants are lifted above the garden. Their leaves are available to harvest throughout the entire gardening season.
This 2-tier plant stand option also displays well on a patio or porch with amble or partial sunlight. It takes up a small amount of space for two-tier outdoor plants or for two-tier potted herb gardens.
If this plant stand is displayed near an inground area or on an inground area but on a patio surface, use the six-inch stake pins to secure the unit in place by staking the pins in the ground half-way and the unit to the pins with cotton rope. If more staking is needed, use the metal stake rods also with the cotton rope. This prevents the two-tier plant stands from tumbling over. These garden stake pins support the pots, stands, or tables that hold the plants.
The third option multi-level plant tables and picnic tables, both table types secured by stake pins:
Picnic tables (#commissionearned) also work well to use as a plant stand for a small garden or small patio gardening setting. Picnic tables have two-tier standing areas for plants. However, metal-plant-stand tables use less spacing, but either unit would work depending on the amount of space allowed in the yard or patio for a garden.
Metal-plant-stand tables and picnic tables option creates a patio garden or an above-the-ground yard garden. Patios and yards with limited spaces can create gardens using heavy-duty plant holder tables, 1-tier, 2-tier, or 3-tier tables, or picnic tables. These tables are sturdy enough to mount small and medium size pots on them in a patio or yard setting. Before filling the pots with potting mix and potting soil, secure the pots down to the table with cotton rope (#commissionearned) to prevent pots from tumbling off table. Secure pots by tying the rope around the pots, then connecting the rope onto the table. The pots should be stationary on the table with adequate drainage in each pot. Pots with large amounts of top foliage are less likely to tumble over in the wind. Pots with high yields will stand stationary in place.
After the pots are installed and secured on the garden tables or picnic tables, secure the tables down in place in a garden yard setting with 6-inch garden stake pins. Install the pins by inserting the pins in the ground about half-way down around each of the legs of the table. Thread rope through each stake pin and tie rope to each of the table legs. Tie rope around the pins and the legs to secure them in place. Add more pins to tighten the tension of the garden tables and picnic tables, then secure more rope around the added pins. The units should feel stationary to the ground. In the stationary pots on the tables begin planting above-the-ground garden.
In a patio setting the above-the-ground garden table can be anchored down with cotton rope. Foliage increases in volume and the plants’ yields are high in above-the-ground vegetable gardens and above-the-ground flower displays. Anchor and tie the units down with cotton rope to something stationary on the patio or use large hollow foundation bricks that you can tie the cotton rope through. The units are then stationary on the patio.
Examples of high foliage plants include potted gladioli flowers with tall stalks and blooming branches. Potted tomatoes plants that climb upward and have high yields of fruits, even cherry tomato plants can reach heights of 5-6 feet. Potted 3-8 feet high cannas flowers. The tall potted sunflower that looks like a giant bean stalk. Tall leafy-green plants if potted, like cabbages and collars. Albeit there are many other plants when potted that become top heavy with foliage, blooms, and yields. Therefore, these plants can be displayed in a small or patio garden.
However, with top heavy foliage, the plants themselves need support holders, outdoor flower plant support holders (#commissionearned). The support holders hold the yields while the fruit is completing its ripening process. For some plants, they need cages, trellis holders and long stake holders to maintain their yields for each plant.
Therefore, anchor and support plant stands, plant holder tables and picnic tables with garden stake pins. This will allow flower support holders that are attached to the plant’s foliage to heighten the plant’s performance for scenic yard appearances and high gardening yields.
