A Back-Friendly Way to Move Heavy Pots

Several years ago I discovered an ingenious little device that makes this potentially back-aching job lots easier. The Pot Lifter cinches around a pot of almost any size, and allows two people to lift and carry it around without bending. Hard to explain in words, easier to see in a photo.

    This is a great idea — I have a couple of big’uns out there that may need to come in if our winter is like it was last year.

    I can attest for this being a proven and safe method for moving large plants and trees. I have several apple trees that are in very large pots that I keep under lights indoors. This method saves my back and is more efficient too. Thanks for sharing.
