If you have tender plants on your porch or patio that need to spend the winter indoors, some of them are probably in big pots. At my house, I bring in about a dozen large pots containing agapanthus, bamboo, phormium, colocasia and a fig tree.

The Pot Lifter

If you have tender plants on your porch or patio that need to spend the winter indoors, some of them are probably in big pots. At my house, I bring in about a dozen large pots containing agapanthus, bamboo, phormium, colocasia and a fig tree.

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.
