I haven't had any experience with them, but I thought I would say they sure look nice! I would love to have something like that if it wasn't for being tight on money.

I have 3 tiered benches that were made quite awhile ago. They are heavy and have wheels attached to the bottom. Once you have plants on these guys they are really heavy. I have mine on a pool patio and move them around esp when it is raining and I want them to get a drenching. ( Bungee cords hold tham in place or they would topple off.) Otherwise they are under an overhang.

I saw this guy at Redlands but did not closely check out his benches. If you go this route I would see if he can attach a rim along the bottom to attach wheels. He is in Sunrise so it may be worth a trip up this way.

I have a friend that is probably checking him out also.

Lorraine,


Hi! I went to RF orchids for a drive and Hello!! they were selling these shelves. They are SUPER DUPER sturdy and they look to be very good quality. I love the rim on them--they will prevent pots from flying off. RF is more pricey than online, so I'm going to order these online directly from the manufacturer.

Mine have rims on the shelves but they still get bungeed down. Before I started doing that I knocked over too many and lost some nice new growth not to mention the mess I make my own cords since they are so expensive at HD, etc and come in the wrong sizes anyway. Let me know if you decide and need info on where to get supplies. I hook one end onto the back of the pot and come under the shelf and up to hook the front. Nobody goes anywhere.

I got a notice that RF is having a Special Summer Sale on Fri, Sat & Sun this week. I might try to get there Fri.

There was a rep from this company selling these shelves at the last TBOS show/sale...and if I didn't already have multiple shelving systems in the room, I would've been bringing some of these home...they're very nice!
