How do I make this container work for plants?

I have had this lovely container for many years. Twice, I tried planting plants in it (grown herbs the second round). Twice, it failed to work well.

I found that any water I gave it poured out the top sets of holes. If I was lucky, it made its way down to the second level & out. Needless to say if anything continued to grow, it became spindly. Most often, it just died.

So I am on here, asking you wise folk, how to make it work once & for all.

I would also be open to alternative uses if anyone can think of any.
