How do you anchor a shepherd's hook?

Insert an 8- to 12-inch garden stake into the hole in the bracket. Push this stake into the ground until it sits flush to the top of the bracket to further anchor the shepherd's hook. Hammer the stake in with a rubber mallet, if necessary. Some hook designs have a secondary stake attached instead of a bracket.
