Outdoor Garden Tiki Torches
Outdoor garden tiki torches are a great way to light up your outdoor gatherings after the sun sets. Outdoor garden tiki torches are decorative poles about 5 feet (1.5 meters) in height with a top fuel reservoir and wick. Outdoor garden tiki torches can be placed along gardens to provide a wonderful tropical ambiance. Outdoor garden tiki torches come in a variety of styles but the most common type is made from bamboo or cane. At the top of the cane is a woven holder that houses a plastic bottle. The lid of the bottle is fitted with a black metal top that accommodates a thick wick of bound cord which hangs down into the tiki fuel. The exposed portion of the wick can burn for several hours. When the tiki torch is not lit, fresh wick can be pulled up from the bottle. The tiki torch also has a small attached cap. The flame is extinguished by placing the cap over the burning wick. The cap can stay on the wick to protect it from moisture until the torch is used again.
The stalk of an outdoor garden tiki torch is hollow and can be pushed down into the earth, however the fuel reservoir makes the torches top heavy. In strong wind a torch could blow over. A good way to prevent this is to use PVC that is slightly larger than the diameter of the tiki torch so that it fits the shaft like a sleeve. Cut the PVC into 12-inch (30 cm) lengths, one for each tiki torch. Dig a hole where you want to place a torch, place the PVC in the ground, then fill in the hole. Now you can drop your tiki torch into the PVC sleeve already buried in the ground. If the torch drops too low, fill the PVC sleeve with dirt to the desired level.
