Nice pot and in excellent condition, good idea to use it as a feature I did the same with mine when the chimney's were capped, I have four, filled them full of compost to plant stuff in....but eventually the plants out grew the stacks and I got bored with where they were placed but couldn't move them due to the weight and even if they could be moved all the compost would have fallen out the bottom.
You can get pots which fit snugly in the stacks and then plant any number of alpines in the pots so you can change the display if you get bored.
My stacks this year started off with pots of rosemary and small conifers over winter, followed by daffs and now tulips. I'm thinking outdoor toms for them next and have pots with gladioli and lillies to put in them later in the summer.
Being empty of compost you can move the stack anywhere in the garden.
