The best pot risers will help make your plants healthier, preventing over-watering, lifting them from damaging frosts, and protecting them from pesky insects and hungry gastropods. Pot feet can also help protect your outdoor surfaces, such as decking, from rot and mold damage. There are lots of different solutions available to suit all shapes, sizes, and types of pots and planters. We've selected what we consider to be the best pot risers available now.

Very good boys to guard your pots

Rise up 

Our overall staff pick is the Bosmere 12-pack of pot toes (opens in new tab). This very popular option offers an affordable and practical solution to get your plant pots off the ground. They are also excellent for stabilizing pots on uneven ground. 

If we're considering the aesthetics of pot risers, we really like Goodman and Wife's set of 3 elephant-shaped pot feet (opens in new tab). They aren't the most capable when it comes to load-bearing, but we just love the playful design. 

If you need an option that withstands heavy weights, consider the Foraineam 20-pack flower pot feet (opens in new tab). These risers come in a generous amount and can cope with a weight of up to 6,000 pounds.
