Hadn't thought about doing this. It has a single 'spike' that is meant to be sunk into the ground. Unless it was firmly anchored it might wobble about - certainly if it was windy - but maybe if you packed the hole with something really substantial to hold it steady it might work. Worth a try!

This is the problem we had. My husband tried to bend it to make it straight and it completely snapped off. Probably best to contact Amazon for a replacement? We left it too late so my mum now has a slightly substandard bird feeder!
